RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - July 27, 2005) - Digital Dispatch Systems Inc.'s (TSX:DD) expansion into the paratransit market went into high gear with the Company's new agreement with GPS Data Solutions LLC (GPS) of San Francisco, California. GPS has won a $4.0 million (Cdn.) contract to provide a paratransit debit card system for the Municipal Transportation Agency of the City and County of San Francisco. Digital Dispatch is assisting GPS in executing the contract by providing bonding support and will provide equipment and other services to GPS valued at approximately $2.5 million (Cdn.).
