The Capital Area Transit System is anticipating service changes. The new service changes include cutting service to Zachary, expanding express service to Coursey Boulevard and O’Neal Lane to downtown, the Mall of Louisiana to downtown, and limited-stop routes from Baker to Southern University to downtown and across Florida Boulevard. The plan also calls for a Baker circulator that would travel all around the city, with stops at the plaza, Plank Road and Main Street. CATS has hired MV Transportation as its program manager to handle service and route changes. MV operators have been working with CATS for the past month. By the end of March, CATS is restoring its GPS mobile app technology that tells riders when a bus is scheduled to arrive. The mobile app, which is a part of the RouteMatch hardware, was suspended October 2013 but CATS CEO Bob Mirabito says after months of tests, the mobile app will return once the system expansion is put in place. RouteMatch, which costs the system $1.4 million, is a hardware that CATS uses internally to track buses during their specific routes. Mirabito also said riders can expect 12 new buses to roll out in mid-February. http://www.nola.com/...le_gps_app.html From the photo in the article, it looks like they currently run Gillig buses.
