TransLoc Rider: Transit Tracking & Alerts
By TransLoc Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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
• New multi-modal trip plan update incorporates stop, route and schedule information when passengers use multiple modes of transportation (e.g. Uber and mass transit). *Limited to participating transit agencies.
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 1.4.10 (802)
Performed some very minor maintenance of the app to make sure it's running smoothly for you. Also squashed a potential bug before the iOS 11 roll out/adoption and corrected a reoccurring crash. Happy riding!
Most necessary app
I used this app several years ago and it worked just okay, however I recently started using it again and the updates to the app have made it perfect! The estimated times are pretty accurate and you can wait inside somewhere close knowing that the app will tell you when your bus is arriving. Highly recommend!
One small problem
The app works great and I use it to get to class every day! Although there is one problem I have with it. In my location services there are only the options for Rider to use my location "always" or "never". Having location services on 100% of the time drains my battery and is unnecessary, but trying to use the app without location on is bothersome. Please fix this!
Accurate and Informative
Up to date and accurate info is a must when busing around the island of Nantucket. Plus you can actually see where the bus is to determine how much time you really have to catch it (just in case it's delayed enroute). Awesome app.
