The team is proud to announce the integration of a live bus tracker into the CampusBird Interactive Map and Virtual Tour platform.

Rice University CampusBird Live Bus TrackingThe live transit tracker, provided by Ride Systems LLC, a leader in GPS tracking, gives CampusBird map visitors the ability to view routes, see real-time bus location along with estimated times of arrival.

Rice University in Texas and Hartford University in Connecticut are the first to offer the new live transit feature to their students, staff and visitors through the CampusBird platform.

“On any given day, our CampusBird clients are responsible for helping thousands of people get around, and it really comes down to improving their experience,” said concept3D CEO, Gordon Boyes. “Combine Ride Systems live transit data with CampusBird’s real-time parking lot occupancy feed, and you have a very powerful online hub of transportation information that can be accessed from any device. We anticipate that the live transit tracking system will be a very popular CampusBird add-on.”

In addition to live vehicle tracking, Ride Systems also provides passenger counting, administrative reporting and mobile wifi to transit agencies of higher education, airports, corporations, municipalities and medical centers. "The concept3D interface users will now have a very robust interactive experience as they move about these large and complex campuses. ” said Justin Rees, CEO of Ride Systems. “Additionally, the artistic and inventive product of concept3D, ensures a very ideal experience to be had by transit riders. We are very excited about this collaboration and the improved experience for our customers for years to come”
