Bus schedules for Cities Area Transit in Grand Forks and East Grand Forks just got a lot handier.

A new phone and web application debuted earlier this summer that allows patrons to view bus routes and departure times instantly.

The app is called RouteShout, and CAT Mobility Manager Ali Rood said it will make riding public transit easier for regular and new riders.

“Say one morning you discover your car doesn’t start or it’s raining and you don’t want to walk somewhere,” she said, adding someone in this situation may not have a paper map handy. “RouteShout lets you figure out the bus schedule on the fly.”

Both versions of the app are available now but will see updates when the agency’s route and system changes roll out later this fall.

RouteShout can be downloaded from the Apple and Android app stores or accessed on the web.
