Missed My Stop!

Over in Tempe, Arizona the automated announcements are not in tune the location of the bus. Visual and spoken announcements are sometimes off by blocks. That means folks are missing stops or getting out at the wrong location, especially the visually impaired and hard of hearing riders. About 1 in 30 or 40 announcements are wrong according to officials. They system is based on the GPS location of the bus. I know in my city the announcements are often wrong.
