TransLoc Rider App

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.

    By Donblaze24

  • Review 1/5

    By chris910019293&
    Glitches and awful with times. Been waiting for over an hour and it’s ridiculous
  • I like the old rider app 1/5

    By Summerimint
    I like the old rider app. But now it keeps asking me to download the new TransLoc app. And I cannot turn it off. It stopped me from using the old app. Please fix it.
  • Rider 3/5

    By Dpanzer
    Its nice to be able to see where the bus is. A lot of the time one bus will show but the other one doesn’t. Needs improvement. Like right at this moment , both buses are not visible so I’m not sure if it’s coming or I missed the bus.🤔
  • Best 5/5

  • Wonderful and helpful 5/5

    By Lil92737
    This app is a saving grace once you find out about it and navigate the design. This has saved my commute and is a wonderful service!
  • LIFESAVER!! 5/5

    By JoJo24601
    This app is a MUST HAVE if you’re a college student! It’s a lifesaver!
  • Great App 5/5

    By Bcuzzzzzzzzz
    This app is easy to use and helps tremendously when you’re waiting for a bus.
  • Please fix this app so I can use it 1/5

    By ykic631
    8 out of 10 times this app doesn’t even track the bus that I take. It will say the bus that I take every morning is out of service and the bus I take in the afternoon says no prediction. This app needs a lot of help as far as I’m concerned. And it’s a shame because it’s basically useless for me. It’s been consecutively doing this for about a year so maybe if I write a review they will fix it.

  • Great App 5/5

    By GI traveler
    Works very well for what I need!
  • Messy 1/5

    By Nub rush M&M
    This app rarely works and most times it’s wrong
  • Could be better 1/5

    By public transportation for all
    This app is NOT user friendly. I have been using it for years and still cannot figure it out!!
  • Helpful & easy to use 4/5

    By AMR_UF
    Aside from a few glitches, this app makes it very convenient to track the buses around my university campus!
  • Love it 5/5

    By Jack Rodgers, Jr.
    At first I had 12 paper maps of Tallahassee then I found this app. Fantastic. The suggested routing is often not the best...
  • Makes Chapel Hill Transit Easy 5/5

    By xyzCrazy8
    As a freshman at UNC-Chapel Hill, the bus system confused me, and I had no clue how to figure it out. Then, I was told about the Rider app. The Rider app has helped me understand the bus system as well inform me of when the busses will come. It has truly been a life saver!
  • Love the app, but timing could improve 4/5

    By jeryface984
    I have enjoyed using this app. Would have given 5 stars but there are times when arriving times are off or there’s no data at all (dreaded ‘no prediction’). If those can improve this would be a stellar app.
  • So unpredictable 1/5

    By nctstatestudents
    I’m a student of NC state and use the app to check the route no 1 and 9 of wolfline . The app is so inefficient and doesn’t show the proper timings of the buses . I switched between 2 bus stops twice to catch the bus and head to my morning class . When I was waiting at one bus stop the other bus to the other bus stop would arrive . I hated my morning Rider ruined it for me several times I was late to class several times due to the wrong predictions of rider . And I ended up spending so much money for Uber’s
  • It’s saved me so many times... 5/5

    By TheMadTweeter
    I can’t tell you how many times this app has saved my life. If you ride public transit, this is the app for you.
  • Outstanding ! 5/5

    By 1Xcnr
    An app that allows you to be informed about your trip. You can plan accordingly with this fantastic tool. One of the most productive and proficient apps available. And with Alert notifications set, you just about know where the issues are ! Outstanding!
  • Occasionally shuts down 3/5

    By GraceMoore
    The app works good on my campus for the most part, but occasionally doesn’t have any information on the bus times. It will just say “no predictions.” This is the only problem I’ve had with the app.
  • App is great. But.... 4/5

    By Breannama
    The app is great but when I need a bus around a certain time and I know it on its way. The app sometimes say “No Predictions” so When I walk out the house I don’t know what time it will be at my stop
  • Awful 1/5

    By sad bus rider
    This is just an awful app. I’m sick of being late to class because instead of letting us know the bus is going to stop for 5 minutes it says less than 1 minute away. Sick of lines not being accurate. Sick of out of service but watch it go past me.. all in all just needs so much work.
  • Corpus Christi bus rider 3/5

    By Islander1995
    The tracking feature is great — it’s nice to see where buses are so I can be at the bus stop on time. However, the notification feature is useless, which is unfortunate b/c it used to work well.
  • really helpful! 5/5

    By kimberly000
  • Just Want To Be On Time 1/5

    By Trying to Hear
    There‘a a delay in showing the accurate arrival time which is frustrating because one minute you’re thinking your bus is 39 minutes away when it’s really 3 minutes away. Another app I installed had it the arrival time correct but they don’t show a bus icon moving so I felt that part was unfortunate.
  • Never accurate and so many bugs! 1/5

    By Thatgurlabby
    This is the only app that the UNC bus system uses and half of the time the times are inaccurate. I have missed the bus a bunch of times and also had to wait for ages when it said 1 minute away for 15 minutes. I have been late to classes because of it way too often. Furthermore, recently the app has been saying “no prediction” for every single UNC bus route. This is annoying considering these buses are indeed running, but the app doesn’t have any information of when the bus will arrive at the stop. There are so many bugs all the time, as my friends phone will have different times than mine. Make this app more consistent and accurate to the bus times!!!
  • OC MD 👍🏼 5/5

    By Gra8!
    Works great for tracking the buses in Ocean City, MD
  • Awesome 5/5

    By HacknWack
    Thanks to Mr Jeff Nelson and his ever competent support staff !
  • It’s ok 3/5

    By Kora Jamese
    Helps me find the bus but doesn’t notify me when the bus is sipping at a stop or when driver take long breaks to get coffee .
  • Great Shuttle Tracker 5/5

    By Chistat
    I use Rider to track the Northwestern University Shuttles. It is priceless when is is very cold out and I need to gage whether to wait inside or outside and how long I will be out in the cold before the bus arrives. Great tool!
  • Great app, unless you want to know when a bus might arrive 3/5

    By Sickpg7
    If you’re trying to track your bus and need an estimate of when it might arrive, unless your time range is at least 30 minutes of variation, the app is useless. A written schedule would be more useful, even during delays and heavy traffic. The app does not provide one.
  • Got me through the summer 3/5

    By pingoricky
    Definitely better than just wondering if the buses were running. I do wish the bus tracking was more accurate though. I’d be waiting for a university bus and see a municipal bus going the same way a block down
  • Easy to use 5/5

    By Samkak7
    Easy to use app to track the shuttle busses. Making it convenient to know when to get to the shuttle stop
  • No 1/5

    They don’t have the correct campus listen on the app. Kennesaw state should be in Kennesaw not Marietta. Now the gps is messed up. Good job.
  • Works great for doctors appointments 5/5

    By drivenone
    Gets me to my appointment on time
  • Locked in with TransLoc 5/5

    By Bikker69
    Very useful, time is managed at a higher level when using TransLoc!
  • Needs work 2/5

    By Austinoa
    ETAs are always way off. A bus will be 15 minutes away and it will predict 5 minutes then jump up to 35 minutes, then back to 4 minutes. Also the navigation is really buggy. Every time I open the app it’s showing me a bus stop/route I didn’t save or view. The only thing it’s good for is seeing the physical location of buses and even that is glitchy at times.
  • Great App 5/5

    By Nyyyy123
    So grateful for this app. It allows me to track the bus to go to class and work. However sometimes the bus and the app are not on the calibrated. But it works more than it does not.
  • Must Have - Better Than Other App 5/5

    By Trouble Maker 23
    This app is a must have if your transit agency uses TransLoc for bus tracking. This app is also much better than the alternative Transloc app that is more cumbersome and does not allow you to view all buses.
  • Pretty great app with minor flaws. 4/5

    By Steven Arteaga.
    The app tracks the buses in my city in real time and always allows me to leave my apartment exactly when I need to to catch the bus without standing in the cold for 25 minutes. Occasionally the buses will get frozen or report not expecting to arrive for 30 minutes and then just randomly pop back on the map and say they will be there in 5 minutes. Those times are pretty inconvenient but it is rare enough and is usually corrected in time that I can still catch the bus.
  • Great app 5/5

    By ThickestinbrowardR
    Love it works really well
  • Always on time 5/5

    By Jbearwest
    With this all I am never again late for work. 100% accurate 100% of the time. Don’t know how worse my transit to work would be without it.
