(AP) - Spring Breakers headed to the beaches of Port Aransas and Mustang Island will get an Internet assist from the Texas Department of Transportation this year.

TxDOT is using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technology to monitor traffic flow and calculate wait times for the ferry to Port Aransas and Mustang Island. Those times will be posted on roadside message boards.

The wait times will also be posted to the @Porta-Ferry Twitter account.
