syracuse.com: Syracuse University staff smoothed the way for graduate’s grandparents (Your letters)

Sometime it’s the little things that make a big difference. Between our staff managing the disabled shuttle, the DPS Fire and Life Safety officer who coordinates the disable entrance, and the Dome staff working Gate A, we have a great team of caring people making commencement comfortable for elderly and disabled family members. We apprecaite the kind words from the Klocek’s in a recent letter to the editor on syracuse.com.

Centro Debuts Mobile App

CENTRO DEBUTS MOBILE APP

Syracuse, NY – The Central New York Regional Transportation Authority (Centro) launched its first official mobile app today. The new “GoCentroBus” app provides customers in the Syracuse, Utica, Auburn, Rome, Fulton and Oswego service areas with access to real-time transit information directly on their smartphones and tablets. Available for FREE on iOS and Android devices, the “GoCentroBus” app uses GPS technology to show customers the exact location of their bus on a Google map while providing predictive arrival times to the exact minute.

“This is a significant step up in our transit technology,” said Centro Chief Executive Officer Rick Lee. “This app allows our riders to see exactly where their bus is and when it’s going to arrive at their stop. It’s reassuring information that allows them to make better use of their time, while knowing their bus is on the way.”

The app also provides customers with a trip planning feature, service alert information, and the ability to bookmark favorite bus stop locations.

“It’s not only a great tool for our current riders, but this app makes it easier to entice potential riders to use our system. The “GoCentroBus” app simplifies the process for first-time users by providing information right at their fingertips,” said Lee.

Centro representatives will be on hand at the Syracuse Transit Hub on December 13th and 14th and at the Utica Transit Hub on December 20th to answer questions and assist customers with setting up the app on their mobile devices. Customers can also access more information about the app via Centro’s website (www.centro.org), its Facebook (www.facebook.com/GoCentroBus)  or Twitter (www.twitter.com/GoCentroBus) pages, or by calling Centro’s customer service center at 315-442-3400.

The Central New York Regional Transportation Authority (Centro) is the public transportation provider for Onondaga, Oneida, Cayuga, and Oswego Counties. Centro’s mission is to provide safe, convenient, reliable, and environmentally responsible services to its clients with a goal of maximizing the taxpayers’ return on investment.
