COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Central Ohio Transit Authority
(COTA) and the Ohio State University
’s (OSU) Campus Area Bus Service (CABS) teamed with researchers at Battelle to create a new app that will help customers more easily plan bus trips, reported The Columbus Dispatch
The app, called C-Ride for short, uses GPS technology to adjust schedules and help riders plan and navigate the quickest COTA and CABS routes. Another feature, dubbed “Connection Protection,” notifies COTA if an app user is on an OSU bus that is running late, allowing bus drivers to hold buses for as long as one minute so riders don’t miss their transfer.
