Great App 5/5
By GI traveler
Works very well for what I need!
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Works great for tracking the buses in Ocean City, MD
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
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
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
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
Easy to use app to track the shuttle busses. Making it convenient to know when to get to the shuttle stop
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
Gets me to my appointment on time
Locked in with TransLoc 5/5
Very useful, time is managed at a higher level when using TransLoc!
Needs work 2/5
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
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
Love it works really well
Always on time 5/5
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.
Very accurate and great for trying to find out news about the routes
Helps a lot 3/5
This app has been very helpful. It helped me to identify the specific bus that bypassed my stop, so that I could report the incident accurately to management. Also, I can quickly identify ride options from any specific stop, and I like being able to monitor the progress of the bus as I wait.
Helpful, Needs Bug-Fix 3/5
The app doesn't work properly especially at night-time. You can see the bus approaching the stop but the eatimation would still say 28 mins or something.
Great service 5/5
One road scheduled disappeared. 4/5
By Kissa kissa
Just suddenly Atlantic ave Road disappeared (NY). No schedule, no route like it doesn’t exist. And the schedule not always accurate. Please fix it.
makes riding the bus a breeze! timing is for the most part accurate.
You’re going to be late 2/5
An app that tells you the bus isn’t coming to you anyway, despite your stop being ACTIVE on the route. If you plan on waiting forever, being late, or wasting your money on an Uber or Lyft, THIS app is for YOU.
This app is horrible. I hate to leave a bad review because it is a good thing you’re trying to do with it but this app is so ridiculously inaccurate I don’t know what to say. One minute the bus is 3 minutes away, the next it’s 38. One minute the bus is 40 mins away, the next it’s 4 minutes. I get alerts saying the bus is 5 minutes away only to find myself waiting at the bus stop for 30 minutes because again the app was WRONG... oh and now I’ve missed class! Thanks for that!
This app is great in theory but until you fix the bugs this app is not only not helpful, but hurting people. You’re getting people to rely on this app by saying you’re a bus timer when I swear this app only works about 50 percent of the time. Please fix the bugs, until then I’m deleting this and do not recommend anybody else download it.
Ocean City 5/5
I use this in OCMD. It’s pretty accurate. Great for off season when the buses run less often.
Get It Together 1/5
By slay me queens
Many people depend on the TransLoc app and its hard to get anywhere when the app is saying the buses aren’t moving. I’ve been waiting for an update to see when the buses are coming for over an hour and yet there is no estimated time or anything that indicates the buses are in route. The service is always going out and its just a really bad inconvenience.
Useful to 5/5
I like it
Where is the rest of the public transportation world???
Best app 5/5
By Dalila Granados
Always wrong 1/5
Says bus is 20 min away when it’s 5 min away. Bus gps is always off showing the bus where it’s not actually.
Clemson area, very inaccurate 1/5
Very inaccurate in terms of bus predictions and locations
Freezes way to much to be any thing other than 1 star.
