COAST, the region's public transportation authority, announced earlier this month that riders can now see where COAST buses are in real time with the DoubleMap app.

DoubleMap shows riders where buses are throughout the COAST system and when they are estimated to arrive at stops.

Riders can use the DoubleMap mobile app or a desktop or laptop computer to see a map that displays buses moving along their routes. Users can choose to see buses on all routes or any combination of active routes.

"We are very excited to be able to offer this new tool to our customers," says COAST Executive Director, Rad Nichols, "Ultimately, DoubleMap will help our riders make it just that much easier to plan and time their trips with COAST."

To activate, download the DoubleMap App on your smart device. Second, open the app to search and select COAST. Third, see exactly where your bus is. Riders can download the DoubleMap app from their preferred source (such as iTunes, the App Store, Google Play, etc.) and use the app anywhere on their mobile device.

The maps on DoubleMap also show every bus stop (users will have to zoom in on the map), so riders will be able to see which routes serve a particular stop, and how long it will be until the next bus arrives there. The DoubleMap system will provide answers to the two big questions of transit riders everywhere: "Where is my bus?" and "When will it get here?"
