To enhance public transportation in Harford County, the Glassman administration has implemented a new online app that answers the question, “Where’s my bus?” The free app called RouteShout now tracks Harford Transit LINK buses in real time from a computer, smartphone or mobile device.
RouteShout shows when the next bus will arrive at any county bus stop and allows users to view bus schedules and stops along established routes, anytime, anywhere. Finding the nearest bus stop is made simple with mapping technology based on the user’s location. With timely information about services, including changes or disruptions, RouteShout makes it easier to plan trips and make vital transportation connections within Harford County and beyond.
“Our goal is to eliminate the guesswork for bus riders and help them get where they need to go, whether it’s to work, school, or an important appointment,” said County Executive Barry Glassman. “Using this technology allows my administration to make public transportation more practical and convenient for our citizens.”
Developed by RouteMatch Software, Inc., RouteShout can be downloaded free of charge from Google Play and Apple’s App Store, or accessed via www.harfordtransitlink.org. Once the application has been downloaded, choose “Harford County Transportation Services” from the menu to view Harford Transit LINK routes.
Harford County Transit LINK operates 45 vehicles Monday through Friday with seven routes countywide and into Cecil County. The LINK also connects with MTA/MARC trains, MTA commuter buses, and regional Greyhound, which then connects with main terminals in Baltimore and interstate travel. Key service areas include Harford Community College, the Mary Risteau State Office Building, Upper Chesapeake and Harford Memorial hospitals, Aberdeen Train Station, Harford Mall, Constant Friendship Mall, and Save-A-Lot Shopping Center.
