China's Ministry of Transport (MOT) has ordered that GPS systems shall be installed on three types of vehicles by the end of this year to enable better supervision.

The MOT said this in a statement jointly released with the Ministry of Public Security, the State Administration of Work Safety and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

All touring coaches, long-distance scheduled buses and vehicles for transporting dangerous articles must install GPS systems that can record their travel data by Dec. 31, the statement said.

Installation of GPS systems for new vehicles in the three categories should begin Aug. 1.
