Nashville MTA offering mobile phone app to riders

Posted on April 14, 2010

Nashville Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) customers have a faster way to receive up-to-date bus information no matter where they are located in Metro Nashville.


RouteShout, a mobile phone application that delivers next-bus arrival times, is now available for customers to receive MTA schedule information. Riders with iPhone or Android phones can download RouteShout for free via the app stores. Any other mobile phone user can access RouteShout through the free mobile Website, m.routeshout.com.


“We are constantly looking for new ways to make the passenger experience even more enjoyable, and this new technology helps us do that by providing information more quickly to our customers,” MTA CEO Paul J. Ballard said. “We believe RouteShout offers not only more convenience to existing riders but also provides an opportunity to attract new riders.”


Customers using RouteShout are able to quickly and easily find bus stops, routes and arrival and departure times on their electronic devices. They can browse by location or search for stops by street name to see when the next bus will arrive. In addition, frequently used stops may be saved as favorites for quick access later.
