Franklin Transit Authority is continuing to provide new and relevant services to its riders with a new mobile app so riders never need to miss their bus again.
Now, passengers can easily Follow Frank, their local Franklin Transit bus, on their mobile phone from the free mobile app.
Riders can immediately begin to use the new app which allows users to track their bus in real time, access route and schedule information and receive important alerts such as weather information that might affect bus service.
Follow Frank was announced Thursday at the Williamson, Inc. Transportation Summit.
“This innovative technology will help transform public transportation in Franklin, Tennessee, making it much more convenient and accessible to seamlessly ride our Fixed Route transit service,” Dale Thomas, Franklin Transit Authority chairman, said. “Riders can now determine the best time and route option in the Follow Frank transportation app to maximize their public transit experience.”
“This past year has been an exciting one for the Franklin Transit Authority,” Debbie Henry, Franklin Transit Authority executive director, said. “On the heels of expanding our routes and stops, we have been able to offer special fares for teenagers, offer military discounts and now provide riders with all the information they need about our services in a user-friendly app right on their smartphone.”
The mobile app is powered by Passiogo.com, which provides transit technology solutions to more than 100 transit agencies.
