There's An "App" For Chattanooga Bus, Bike Trips

Thursday, August 21, 2014

There's now an "app" available for planning your next Chattanooga bus or bicycle trip.

Jenny Park of the Regional Planning Agency said Chattanooga is now part of 75 transit systems across the country online at Transit App.

She said the system, which is available via a free download, went live for Chattanooga on July 24.

Ms. Park said a potential rider can open the app on his or her smart phone and it will recognize the person's location. It will then pinpoint the nearest bus stop or bicycle site.

It also tells "in real time" how far away the next bus is and when it will arrive.

The Transit App also allows the user to type in the destination, and it then shows a map outlining the preferred route."

Ms. Park said users of the App can find out how many bicycles and docks are available at a particular bike site.

The app may be downloaded from the App Store or from Google Play.

The Transit App website touts: 

Transit finds your next departure. Instantly. Free.

Why use a trip planner when you already know the way? With Transit, all nearby departures are just a tap away. Not sure which route to take? Don't worry, our easy-to-use trip planner can still show you the way! Best of all, it's free!
