Bus tracker coming for Steamboat Springs
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Bus riders in Steamboat Springs will soon be able to use their computers and smartphones to track their ride.
Steamboat Springs Transit has signed a contract with RouteMatch to install a new GPS tracking system in all 21 of the buses in the city’s fleet.
Transit Manager Jonathan Flint says the system will help bus riders and the staff who run the regional and local bus lines.
Steamboat Today reports riders will be able to use smartphones as soon as this winter to figure out where the next bus is and what time it will arrive.
Flint says the technology will be especially useful in a place like Steamboat where it can be tough to stand outside on cold winter days waiting for buses that may be running late.
