Northwestern U. adds real-time bus tracking

EVANSTON, Ill. — The beta version of a new bus tracking system was recently made available online, allowing Northwestern University students to follow shuttles around Chicago and Evanston, according to The Daily Northwestern.

The system, run by Ind.-based company DoubleMap, intends to end issues with late or absent shuttles. Though the tracker does not account for weather or road conditions, it still allows students to see when buses will arrive, allowing them to plan ahead. For the full story, click here.
