ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The University of New Mexico and the city of Albuquerque are teaming up to help students get around campus faster and easier.
It's part of the city's "Where's my Bus?" mobile and desktop app, which is now being expanded, to include UNM's shuttle service.
This will help students and staff quickly pinpoint the location of UNM shuttles that transport passengers to and from parking lots and bus stops on campus.
UNM President Robert Frank says this will help ease traffic congestion around campus.
"The corner of University and Lomas is the highest-congestion spot in the city, so this helps everyone in the morning and afternoon spot that gives everybody headaches," Frank told KRQE News 13 Tuesday.
The new UNM-related app is considered a work-in-progress that will rely in part on feedback from riders as it develops in the coming months, he added.
A contest was also announced. It challenges students to create a new UNM events app.
The winner will be announced in December, and will get $5,000.
