Manhattan has received a new technological addition to its bus service thanks to a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation.
The Flint Hills Area Transportation Agency has recently been able to begin adding digital signs, known as “way signs,” to help better assist bus riders with getting to their locations. Marketing and Communications Specialist Daphne McNelly details how the signs function.
McNelly says that the KDOT grant has been helpful not only with the installation of the signs, but also for community engagement and disability inclusion.
Further technical updates and improvements to the ATA Bus system are expected and are currently under development.
