Port Authority of Allegheny County (PA) riders now have the option to track light-rail vehicles in real time.
This marks the final phase of the rollout of the TrueTime system, which began in 2013 on the bus fleet.
“This has been one of the most anticipated items from rail riders for several years,” said interim CEO David Donahoe in a statement. “Real-time information reduces time riders spend waiting for public transit and allows them to make better, more informed decisions about their transit experience.”
Information is currently available at TrueTime.PortAuthority.org, and the agency expects third-party developers to incorporate the information into mobile applications soon.
