Tampa, Fla.-based Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART) launched its “OneBusAway Tampa” app. The city is the third in the nation to adopt this real-time technology, which first debuted in Seattle and New York.

The OneBusAway Tampa app provides a suite of tools to deliver real-time bus tracking information to HART riders on the go.

The app is easy to navigate and seamlessly interfaces with Web-enabled devices such as computers, tablets and smart phones. It uses GPS technology to send up-to-the-minute details on bus arrival information.

HART partnered with the Center for Urban Transportation at the University of South Florida, where the software was developed with funding from the National Center for Transit Research. Georgia Tech evaluated the system for HART too, thanks to funding from the National Center for Transportation Systems Productivity and Management.
