ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Dougherty County School system hopes new GPS systems in school buses and other system vehicles will ultimately help save money.

The cameras already on more than 120 buses have an optional Global Positioning Satellite program that the school system can purchase for an additional fee. It will cost approximately $60 to $80 per bus, and will be installed this summer.

"The ultimate goal is to save efficiency, fuel, timeliness, the whole thing with the transportation department," said Transportation Director Kenneth Williams.  

The goal is to make sure drivers are using the most efficient routes possible and that they are obeying speed and safety laws.
