CATS iPhone Application

"Have you ever arrived at a transit stop and wanted to know when the next bus or train will arrive or depart?  Well, now your iPhone can help you answer those questions.  CATS is pleased to announce a new FREE app for the iPhone with versions for Blackberry, Droid and web-enabled smartphones arriving in March 2011.  The 'Ride CATS' mobile app estimates the next arrival time and the next three arrival times at any transit stop for any CATS bus route or LYNX train.  'Ride CATS' is an expansion of the introductory mobile app launched last year for the LYNX Blue Line and is the first of many mobile innovations CATS will be making this year.
Besides checking on your next ride, the 'Ride CATS' iPhone app also features:
Displaying the next three times a transit vehicle is to arrive at a stop or station
Saving your most frequented stops and routes for quick access to get the next bus/train trip
Showing an entire route and stops on a Google Map
Complete stop listing with an option to display it on a Google Map
Planning a trip through Google Transit
Spanish and English language options
And, sending feedback  to CATS Customer Service"
The app can be found in the iTunes store here.
