TransLoc has raised the bar with this wholly reimagined transit-tracking app. If you’ve ever stood in the rain wondering where your bus or train is, TransLoc Rider is the app for you. TransLoc Rider provides real-time transit tracking, arrival predictions and proximity alerts.
With TransLoc Rider you can:
• Watch buses and trains move in real time
• Set alerts that tell you when your favorite bus is approaching
• See the location and heading of any bus in your vicinity
• Watch all the buses moving on a specific route
• Check the arrival predictions for all buses approaching a specific stop
• Use SmartSearch to quickly locate specific routes and stops
This app leverages an Apple service called the "significant location change service", which runs in the background and collects data only when your device has traveled 500 meters and five minutes have passed. This results in a tiny processing impact to your device. The benefit to transit riders is assisting transit agencies in positioning routes and stops as well as dispatching vehicles with optimal frequency.
What's New in Version 1.4.5
Fixes an issue that prevented the routes selection screen from appearing in certain cases.
This App is very useful to know where the shuttles are along the route. I no longer have to rush out of the office just to spend more time waiting for the shuttle to arrive. The estimated arrival times are pretty close to accurate.
Great app, I love being able to know exactly when my bus is coming and watching them move on the map. Use it everyday.
I love this app. The information is accurate and up-to-date. Makes writing the bus at thousand times easier.
