COLUMBIA — Here are revisions to Columbia's bus schedule and technological upgrades on its current tracking system.
1. Starting Aug. 1, the hours of operation for FastCAT will change by one hour. It will stop running at 1:30 a.m. Thursday through Saturday rather than its current closing time of 2:30 a.m. This is due to a limited number of users.
2. On Aug. 17, the modified FastCAT 107 summer schedule that began July 1 will end with the beginning of regular semester. Check here to see the regular schedule.
3. By mid-August, Columbia Transit plans to upgrade its current bus tracking system with new GPS technology. Returning students to Columbia will be able to track an estimated time of bus arrival and the current location of any bus on any route, including FastCAT and Tiger Line, with a mobile application on any iPhone or Android-based smartphone.
