Enable people at bus stops to get current information about where the bus is and when it will arrive (not when it's scheduled to arrive). I take the 1L/1M frequently, and it's anybody's guess when the bus will arrive. Often, two of them arrive together--meaning one of them is completely off schedule. GPS-based locators with data accessible to riders via smartphones or the GO line needed would help a lot.

Many thanks for your suggestion.  Fortunately, this is already in the works.  Capital Metro already has automated vehicle location technology with real-time data installed and operating on our MetroAccess and MetroRail fleet. When MetroRapid is introduced in 2014, it will also have this technology available (http://www.capmetro.org/metrorapid/). We will also begin to install this system on MetroBus - the plan is currently to start in the Summer of 2014 and hopefully have ready to go in the Fall of 2014. Thanks again for your participation.

1M and IL route needs to be fixed. It is rediculous to hahe to wait 10minutes for the bus to arrive, then it stop and not move at a transit center with its engine running for 30 minutes. With 2 buses thay need to come every 7-8 minutes on all the streets/transit centers they share. Instead you se 3 of them all show up at North Lamar transit center at once!

how is this coming along? You mentioned that all the buses would be set up with geo or gps services by now. Is it ready? Where would we go to see them en route??
