Lafayette working to cut bus wait times

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Bus riders may soon be able to use their phones to find out when a bus will arrive at their stop.

The Lafayette Transit System is working on a smartphone app that would allow riders to check the status of a bus, one of several changes underway or planned for the city-owned bus service.

The Advocate reports the system is working on other ways to cut wait times. A reworked route went into effect on Aug. 4 with that goal as a target.

City-parish transit/parking manager Mike Mitchell says staff is working on the smartphone app, which would tie into a GPS tracking system.

Route tracking is available online at . Mitchell says the smartphone app, which could be available in 2015, would provide easier mobile access.
