RTS Launches Mobile App

RTS has released a new "Where's My Bus? " mobile app that it says will allow Apple and Android users to access real-time information on bus arrival times, the nearest stops, routes and service alerts.

Features include a display of the next three bus arrival times which shows highlighted routes on a map and tracks real-time bus locations.  Riders can also use the GPS in their phones to find their location and the closest three bus stops around them.

RTS officials say other features include the ability to plan a trip using the RTS app via Google Transit, which is similar to Google Maps.

The transit company launched a prototype of the new app for RIT earlier this year.
