MINNEAPOLIS — Star Tribune reported that Metro Transit is having drivers on three of its busiest bus routes enter information into a computer when a customer can’t or won’t pay full fare. The agency is trying to find out whether it can gather enough data to pinpoint when and where people are not paying. The transit system provided 68 million bus rides in 2012, and about 4% of riders didn’t pay. For the full story, click here. RELATED:"Transit Implements Control Tactics to Combat Fare Evasion"
Staffed 24/7 with more than 100 drivers and 58 buses, free National Express shuttles will be running every 10 minutes during peak service and 20 to 30 minutes at lower-volume commuting times.
Will be used to improve sidewalks and ADA ramps within a half mile of the First Coast Flyer™ North Corridor stations and construct pedestrian access to the Armsdale Park-n-Ride facility.
Of the 20 people injured, none were considered serious and 13 were transported by New York City EMS to hospitals.
Riders using a desktop computer, smart phone device or traditional telephone can schedule their pick-up and desired drop-off locations: reducing their wait time, arriving at their destination faster, and increasing the overall rider experience.
The advanced Driver Assist System, utilizing a licensed GPS technology developed by the University of Minnesota, provides feedback to the driver regarding lane position – via graphic driver alert displays, virtual mirror, vibrating seat and actuated steering.
