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 USFâ€™s Center for Urban Transportation Research. It will be available on smart phones, through the HART website and through telephone operators. HARTâ€™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.
