La Crosse’s MTU launches real-time tracking app

Finding your next bus in La Crosse could be as easy as checking your smartphone.

The La Crosse MTU has released a new phone app.

The app provides real-time location of buses throughout the city.

Rider alerts including route changes and bus stop closures are also included in the app.

MTU leaders say they hope to make riding the bus easier for everyone.

“If you’re an avid bus rider, know what stops you’re at and what your location is, you’re able to pull up and see what the next arrival times are, but what’s really exciting for people that aren’t familiar with the transit system is it makes it so much easier to ride the bus,” said Adam Lorentz, MTU Transit Manager.

The app is available on Android and Apple devices through the app stores.
