Pa.'s Lehigh U. adds real-time bus tracking

Posted on February 14, 2011

Bethleham, Pa.-based Lehigh University and StarPath Technologies LLC launched a real-time bus tracking website with StarPath GPS fleet management for their vehicles. The website will provide university students the ability to view each campus-run vehicle in real-time and tracks all bus routes.

Students will now be able to find the exact location of their bus using their laptop or cell phone and wait in a safe environment controlled building until they see their bus approach their location. This helps students stay out of the rain, snow and other harsh environments.

"Lehigh University is excited about providing this helpful and innovative service to our students and hopes to see increased usage of the buses," said Chris Christian, director of Lehigh University Parking and Transportation. "StarPath Technologies offered a superior system, was cost effective and addressed the needs of our students."
