City of Tyler:

TYLER (KYTX) - The Tyler Transit Department has launched RouteShout, a free smartphone app that allows riders to view current bus routes and arrival times for Tyler Transit. The free app can be downloaded from www.routeshout.com.

"By adding this technology we can provide an alternative source of updated and accurate information to our customers," said James Oliver, transportation operations coordinator. "RouteShout is an easy to use mobile app that can assist customers in their efforts to utilize Tyler Transit. Tyler is the only city in Texas using the RouteShout technology." 

Citizens should still arrive at their bus stop at least five minutes before the estimated arrival time and check the next bus arrivals more than once to make sure the vehicle isn't running faster or slower than when it was last checked.

Also effective April 1, Tyler Transit has renamed the Red 1A Route to the #5 Purple Route to lessen confusion regarding the Red Routes that travel north and south on Broadway Avenue and through the Medical District.

The #5 Purple Route will still travel through the Medical District on Beckham Avenue.  It will also keep the same bus stops and bus stop times. The only change will be the number and color of the route.

For additional information or questions regarding this route or any other bus route within the Tyler Transit System, please contact Tyler Transit at (903) 533-8057, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
