CATS unveils new texting feature to track buses

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Capital Area Transit System is unveiling a new texting feature to help riders better track the buses.

CATS is putting up 300 placards at various stops to explain the new option.

Customers can text their bus stop ID to a number and they'll get a list sent to their phones of buses that will be arriving in the next hour.

Officials said users don't need a smartphone or a data plan for the feature to work.
