COOPERSTOWN – A press conference this morning on the Baseball Hall of Fame steps launched a new “app” that allows tourists to check how soon the Cooperstown Trolley will be showing up at any one stop.
Mayor Jeff Katz, who was on the scene with trustees and county, City of Oneonta and Birnie Bus officials, gave credit to tech-savvy Village Trustee Jim Dean with proposing the app idea for the trolley system.
Today’s announcement was an expansion of a Otsego County Planning Department and Oneonta Public Transit collaboration announced last week, whereby commuters can check on an iPad, Smartphone, PC or other device when an OPT bus is due.
The map refreshes every 2.5 seconds.
This is a great opportunity to bring the county transportation system into a multi-media platform,” said county Planning Director Karen Sullivan.
OPT and the Planning Department partnered with Oneonta’s Sweet Home Productions on both the trolley and commuter bus initiative.
