COTA Website/IVR




Since 2003, advances in computer technology and the Internet have allowed COTA to provide web-based customer trip planning information. After a customer enters both origin and destination locations and trip times, a printable trip itinerary, including a map, is generated. Web-based trip planning allows the customer to specify parameters in developing itineraries, such as minimizing travel time, walking distances, or transfers. The website will also provide real-time bus locator information in the near future.
