RouteShout, the automatic vehicle location system for TransIT Connectors, allows riders to locate their bus, see how long until the next bus arrives, and set system wide and route alerts if a Connector is running late. TransIT riders who do not have a smartphone are able to receive real time bus arrival updates to their phone by texting the unique stop ID, located on each Connector bus stop sign, to 25252. Unsure which bus stop is closest to your location? Select the "Locate Me" option for a full list of stops nearby. RouteShout will ease your TransIT commute and is simple to use:
