Thanks all on all your feedback! Working on a updated new version.
Shows the real time locations of Utah Transit Authority's Buses, Trax, and FrontRunner routes. Quickly and easily shows the route, its stops, and where the vehicle is.
Many more exciting features coming! Working on getting schedules, and a few other fun features as fast as I can get them to you. Thank you for all your support. I ride FrontRunner, Trax and the Bus every day commuting to work, and I work on writing this app while I'm on the train. This was something I wish I had on those cold mornings wondering where the train was, so I built it, and figure you all would like it too. If you like the app, please rate it, and let me know what features you would like in it. I'll try to build them for you.
Note: Only works for bus and train routes for UTA in Utah, USA. It uses UTA realtime and transit data that is provided as a service of Utah Transit Authority.
What's New in Version 2.1
2016 April: iRideUTA is still one of the top 5 critical apps for me. In the morning, I check to see where the train is and can wait in my warm car until it is about here. In the evening, I leave Salt Lake at various times, so seeing the bus and TRAX and FrontRunner has saved me many times. If I see a UTA stop, I txt UTA and it responds with a text, then I can see exactly where the bus is.
Though the location button is broken, this is a great app!
2014 Dec update 2.1.1, the bottom left button showing my location no longer works.
This is one of the most critical apps on my phone! I use it multiple times daily.
This app saved me from standing in below freezing temp. The FrontRunner train updated every 7-10 seconds. Also, a connecting bus, 807 was accurate!
Tap on a Green Pin to display direction the train or bus is going and other info.
This is the most beneficial app on my iPhone! This app makes the iPhone relevant and valued.
I found the UI very easy to use with good options to turn off unused routes and turn on stop indicators.
The app loads fast. Well done Barclay and UTA!
For those of you who are complaining about inaccuracies, this app is designed to pull information directly from UTA. If you want to blame somebody for the inaccuracies, blame UTA, not the developer.
This app is great. It has a sleek, modern UI and is incredibly user friendly. I really like the ability to set favorites and filter forms of transportation that you can't use.
I have 2 issues with this app, but none of them are huge:
1. Scrolling on the map is slow and choppy. This may be a simple issue of optimization, or it could be unfixable due to the developer using 3rd party assets. This doesn't really factor into my rating, but it would be nice if it could be addressed.
2. There's no way to remove ads. Ads infuriate me beyond belief, but as an independent developer myself I understand the need for them. However, it would be nice if the developer could incorporate a micro transaction of a few dollars to remove advertisements. I would gladly pay for it.
All in all this is a great app, and is essential to anyone using UTA; because we all know they're ALWAYS on time.
Very Useful App!
I credit this app for making it possible to go without replacing my car when it died. It does everything I need it to do. It's been invaluable for knowing when a bus is early, late, or for whatever reason not running. I use it multiple times a day every weekday. On the latest update I miss having the location services and the ability to turn off the stop spots. It's a little cluttered with all the stops. The directional indicators and the UI improvements are great in the latest update! Thank you for all your work on this app!
