Tufts Public Safety in collaboration with Tufts Technology Services (TTS) is pleased to announce the pilot of a new service that displays the routes and schedules for Tufts’ campus shuttle (The Joey), and uses real-time GPS tracking to show when the next bus will arrive at each stop.

The pilot service is available now through December 20th. The shuttle GPS tracker map is accessible via Tufts’ Administrative Services website at http://publicsafety.tufts.edu/adminsvc/shuttle-services-2/, as well as on each shuttle schedule page. Tufts Mobile users can access the map at http://m-staging.tufts.edu/transit/#.

The GPS equipment for the shuttle has been provided by Double Map, the GPS provider for Fitchburg State, Saint Louis University and Indiana University at Bloomington.

We welcome your participation in the shuttle GPS pilot. Feedback can be provided using the GPS Feedback form located on the Administrative Service shuttle page at http://publicsafety.tufts.edu/adminsvc/the-joey-medfordsomerville-campus-shuttle/#GPS_Feedback_J.
