Mich. State student group calls for bus tracking app

Posted on September 26, 2011

EAST LANSING, Mich. — The Associated Students of Michigan State University (ASMSU) is proposing a new mobile application to track the real-time location of Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA) buses, according to The State News.

ASMSU plans to launch a downloadable app to allow students to see bus routes on their mobile phones or tablets using a GPS installed in CATA buses. The program would apply to buses that run on campus and Route 1.

CATA already has begun equipping its buses with GPS, which could save ASMSU money in the program's development. The app's development is still in its beginning stages. For the full story, click here.
