A recently launched iPhone application allows for easy access to Saskatoon bus routes and stop times.
The app, called Stoon Ride, was developed by Saskatoon-based company Gaptel Innovative Solutions, and is available from the Apple App Store for 99 cents.
With it, you can search transit schedules by stop number and street name, and plot a course from point A to point B.
Additionally, the app has a favourite feature that allows users to add frequently used stops and routes to a personalized list.
Although Stoon Ride is not affiliated with Saskatoon Transit, it grabs realtime data and updates from the city’s transit website and twitter account.
Gaptel’s executive officer, Soji Oyenuga, is a University of Saskatchewan alum who received his masters of Computer Science from the U of S in 2002.
Gaptel has also launched a similar application in Regina and London, Ont., and according to their website, Thunder Bay and Guelph can expect their own apps in the coming months.
