* Michigan - Detroit to receive 80 new buses this year; launch smartphone app to track arrival times

Detroit,MICH,USA -Metro Times, by Ryan Felton -Jan 9, 2015: -- News about public transit in this region typically doesn't draw a positive response, but this should, especially considering the frigid plunge in temperatures we've experienced in recent days: Over the coming months, the Detroit Department of Transportation (DDOT) will receive 80 new buses to upgrade its antiquated fleet; the first seven are expected to arrive in the next couple of weeks... The city says 10 of the buses from the fresh fleet will be longer, 60-foot articulated buses that provide additional capacity on DDOT's busiest routes. The other 70 will be standard 40-foot buses...
Besides the new "DDOT Bus" provides a smartphone app, which will provide real-time locations of buses and the arrival time of a bus at the riders' stop. The app, available on iPhone and Android devices, tracks buses using GPS technology, something every DDOT bus has... Those without a smartphone can use DDOT's "Text My Bus" program to find out where their bus is located at any given time. To use that, send a text message that only includes the cross streets of your current location to 50464, and a response will be sent with prompts to get specific information pertaining to routes and buses...
