Idaho launches new online source for buses

Posted on March 18, 2010

Idaho bus riders have a new online source for real-time transit information with the launch this week of 511 Transit — a new enhancement to the state's 511 Traveler's Services System, the Idaho Transportation Department announced.

The new 511 Transit system begins with online schedule and route information for Citylink (Kootenai and Benewah counties), START Bus (Teton County), Pocatello Regional Transit and Northwestern Trailways. During coming months, the system will expand with the addition of seven other transit providers, including those in southwest Idaho.

Bus riders will enjoy benefits of a dedicated online site for bus transit systems, including tracking transit activity, bus locations, system delays and current schedules through an interactive Web interface; maintaining access to transit system information like bus routes and stops; and accessing regular updates to notifications of route changes and bus delays.
