SANTA FE – Real-time technology is elevating the public transit experience for the New Mexico Department of Transportation’s (NMDOT) Park and Ride passengers with P&RealTime.
The addition of real-time transit information allows riders to know the location and arrival time of their bus at any point along the route. This puts riders in control of their schedule by minimizing wait time and avoiding anxiety over missed buses. The information can be accessed in real time from a web browser, SMS or smartphone using top-rated mobile apps developed by TransLōc.
“NMDOT Park and Ride bus service reduces traffic congestion and provides an affordable alternative to driving in New Mexico,” NMDOT Cabinet Secretary Tom Church said. “This technology will make public transit an even more attractive alternative to driving.”
In addition to knowing exactly where their bus is, riders can now receive alerts when their bus is arriving and easily plan around schedule changes. Riders with access to real-time passenger information report reduced stress and improved travel efficiency, ease of use, and feelings of personal security.
