Smart Transit for your Smart Phone


 

The epitome of cross-sector collaboration, Real-Time Transit Fresno is the product of three distinct organizations – Fresno Area Express Bus (FAX), ScholarDev and ValleyPBS – teaming up to create a more efficient way to access and use public transportation in Fresno.

The 2017 Just Transit Challenge winner was awarded $70,000 to support the development and wide-reaching launch of a real-time, mobile app to help users discover ideal local bus routes, track the arrival of their buses, and get to and from destinations in a timely manner. The app, Fresno Transit Free is available for both iOS and Android devices and will eventually be available in multiple languages, with accessibility features for the visually impaired.
