Mobile website offers real-time shuttle tracking

Posted 11/22/13

Visitors to campus, and resident students, can now track in real time the location of the shuttle buses that traverse the streets around Fitchburg State University each day.

The shuttle tracking is a feature of the university’s mobile web site, visible at http://m.fitchburgstate.edu. Visitors to the mobile site can select “Shuttles” from the menu and will be taken to a real-time feed of the buses’ whereabouts on and around campus.

About half of Fitchburg State’s undergraduate students commute to campus each day, parking in lots adjacent to campus and at the Wallace Civic Center. The Montachusett Regional Transit Authority (MART) contracts with the university to provide shuttle service along North Street between the Civic Center, main campus and the intermodal garage on Main Street.

The mobile website was developed for Fitchburg State by Modo Labs of Cambridge, and in partnership with MART.

Fitchburg State’s mobile website also features modules allowing visitors to take a virtual tour of the campus, check out course offerings, watch videos, and learn about campus and athletic events.
