Real Time Guidance
Several custom features were required to meet the needs of Pierce Transit riders. In addition to a content management system that made it easy to manage text, images and video, administrators needed a way to update data for more than 35 bus routes that serve Washington’s second largest county. With the customized version of GearBox each route page can be edited to show images, list stops and maintain detour and rider alert information.
Adding mobile capabilities to the new site was vital – populated with real-time data, now users can plan trips, get route information and see when the next bus will arrive all via smart phone.
