"RTC announced it partnered with the Transit app to show crowding information to help with trip planning and social distancing. The app will show route lines with live locations and the current crowding level, either 'many seats,' 'some seats' or 'very limited seats.' 'Many seats' will appear if the bus is below 50% of its current capacity limit. Buses between 50% and 90% of the current capacity will say 'some seats,' and those above 90% will show 'very limited seats.' Riders will also be able to report how crowded they think a bus appears to be via the app. The Transit app is available on iPhone and Android. Visit transitapp.com to learn more." (NEWS3 KSNV)
