Apparently, it’s the season for new government-entity websites — DART launched a revised version earlier this week. DART’s website now uses Google maps for its home page trip planner, and its “Where’s My Bus?” and “Where’s My DART Stop?” applications are now mobile-phone friendly.
“Where’s My Bus?” users can now follow the progress of their bus via a Google map. If the bus is coming within 15 minutes, the app gives an estimated time of arrival. “Where’s My DART Stop?” helps users find the nearest DART buses and stops, also via Google maps. Similar tools will be available in a few weeks for DART Rail and through text messages, says DART spokesman Morgan Lyons.
