SU Implements NextBus Shuttle Tracking System

SALISBURY, MD---Need to catch a Salisbury University shuttle?

Students and other riders now may find out the exact locations and arrival times of campus shuttles thanks to a new partnership with NextBus.

The company uses GPS technology and historical travel data, including stops and traffic patterns, to track buses and predict arrival times with high accuracy. Information is refreshed constantly to provide riders up-to-the-minute information.

“For us, this is about student safety,” said Kevin Mann, SU’s Physical Plant director. “At night, when students are finished studying in the library or working in labs, they can leave to catch a shuttle directly rather than standing outside for an indefinite period of time.”

Other advantages for students include being able to better utilize their time by avoiding waits, especially during inclement weather and during hours with infrequent bus arrivals.

SU is the first Eastern Shore campus to implement the NextBus system. For more information call 410-543-6030 or visit the SU website at www.salisbury.edu.
