Transit CEO says system problems will be fixed
BATON ROUGE - The chief executive of East Baton Rouge Parish's bus system says the kinks in the highly touted GPS bus tracking system should be worked out by the end of September.
Brian Marshall said the Capital Area Transit System experienced some "glitches" with the system, which was installed in January. He said the problems were tied to server issues with the system provider, Route Match. Marshall described some of the problems as typical re-calibration issues for a new technology system.
The Advocate reports his comments followed a CATS board meeting this past week at which one board member chastised the staff for problems with the GPS system.
