GoLive apps and tools to tell Triangle riders when buses will arrive

Triangle residents will get a glimpse tomorrow at an app-based and texting technology that will provide mass-transit users with real-time updates on bus arrival times throughout the region.

Transportation officials say it will be the nation's first such technology that incorporates routes and buses from multiple transit agencies.

The GoLive network, which goes online Nov. 15, will include six local transit systems to help riders plan trips across the region, from Chapel Hill and Durham to Raleigh and Cary.

Raleigh and Chapel Hill have been offering riders real-time arrival notifications for several years, but it will now be expanded to the other agencies and coordinated.

"Folks are more prone to ride transit if they have the comfort of knowing when the bus is going to arrive," said Brad Schulz, a spokesman for Triangle Transit.
