Bethlehem, PA (PRWEB) February 2, 2011
Lehigh University and StarPath Technologies, LLC today announced the launch of a real-time bus tracking website with StarPath GPS fleet management for their vehicles. The website will provide university students the ability to view each campus-run vehicle in real-time, and tracks all bus routes including Athletics, Saucon Village, T.R.A.C.S. and Mountaintop.
For the first time students will now be able to find the exact location of their bus using their laptop or cell phone and wait in a safe and environment controlled building until they see their bus approach their location. This helps students stay out of the rain, snow and other harsh environments.
"Lehigh University is excited about providing this helpful and innovative service to our students, and hopes to see increased usage of the buses," said Chris Christian, Director of Lehigh University Parking and Transportation. "StarPath Technologies offered a superior system, was cost effective and addressed the needs of our students," added Christian.
"StarPath Technologies is dedicated to bringing value to the University by providing them with a uniquely versatile system to help them fully optimize their fleet assets," said John P. Lucich, President of StarPath Technologies. "We appreciate the opportunity to help them achieve goals," added Lucich.
