DDOT to get 80 new buses, real-time app

Detroit bus service is entering the new millennium with a fleet of new buses outfitted with GPS technology and an app for riders.

Excerpt:

"The city says 10 of the buses from the fresh fleet will be longer, 60-foot articulated buses that provide additional capacity on DDOT's busiest routes. The other 70 will be standard 40-foot buses. The new fleet arrives thanks to a $38 million in federal grants, with the Michigan Department of Transportation kicking in the necessary amount in local matching funds. "
