WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
The Hillsborough Area Regional Transit authority is trying to make it easier for bus riders to figure out how to get from point A to point B. HART will launch a web-based bus information system for riders this summer. The program is called OneBusAway and was created with the help of USF’s Center for Urban Transportation Research. It will be available on smart phones, through the HART website and through telephone operators. HART’s Information Technology Services coordinator, Shannon Haney is asking riders to help improve the service by participating in a survey. Some riders will be able to start using a test-app before this summer. More information is on their website.
