(KETK) - Tyler Tx — Tyler bus stops are getting a facelift. Covers are being added to many of the stops around town and the city hopes this will help boost ridership in Tyler.
Since the installations, they have already seen a four percent increase.
They are also adding more bus transfers, to cut down on wait time.
Last year, only about 50 to 70 percent of buses were on time.
"They can make transfers along the lines and our on time performance is at 92 percent now," said Barbara Holly, MPO Executive Director.
If you frequently ride the bus and want to see where the buses are in real time, download their new app "Route Shout." It should be available on all smartphones.
