About TransLoc Rider: Transit Tracking & Alerts

Developer Description

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.

App Reviews

  • Best app for public transpo but sometimes off

    By Askaris Jewelz
    Sometimes when I hit notify me when 5 min away it won’t , but I know the bus times near me so I knew it was coming idk if it was bc the route just started or bc the bus driver takes a break and u can see the bus sitting there idle then boom u look again and it’s almost at ur stop [ I live near a mall where route begins ] also upcoming is sometimes inaccurate u gotta keep watching it to know or look up the times and only check how far it is basically. Once they fix those things it will be unstoppable but overall is a great help
  • Extremely inconsistent

    By Nadir Elamin
    This app rarely ever works correctly. It will sometimes say that a bus is 10 minutes away while using WiFi but when u get to the bus stop and use data, the app says the bus will arrive in 40 minutes!! I’ve used this app for about 5 years now and it has been inconsistent all the time. Sometimes it will say that the next bus will arrive in 40 minutes but actually a bus will arrive in 5 minutes that isn’t even being tracked by the app. I can easily tell that the developers haven’t taken any time to improve the app. Extremely stupid and annoying. I’ve been late to classes multiple times due to this app. Definitely a 1 star rating. If there was a different app that tracked the buses I would use that.
  • Good in concept poor in execution

    By Legosith
    5 minutes away for a bus either means 15 minutes away or the bus passed 5 minutes ago. The timing estimations are atrocious and for an app that's supposed to make getting from place to place in a timely fashion easier that flaw must be fixed immediately. The only thing this app is good for is if you're already on a bus and want to know where the next stop is so you can get off and walk to where you're going instead. At least if you are walking there is no one to blame but you. I wish that I could rate this app less than one star. Just today I had a bus that was “approaching the stop” for almost twenty minutes, fix the app please. So many of us rely on it being consistent.
  • Almost perfect

    By RJJO
    The app is great. Very helpful. Makes using transit very easy and effective. The only issue I have is that the only options for location determination are "always" or "never." It would be better if it were possible to turn off the location features as soon as the app was closed, rather than having to switch to settings and click through a number of screens in order to turn off the location services. Other than that, it is really great!
  • About time

    By nukeo-3
    Thank you for accurate transit tracking that we have waited decades for. Good direction. Few improvements would be jumping to closest stop is not always correct and some buses that are clearly off schedule but show as on time. Not sure if the eta is based on schedule or bus tracking or both. A few improvements in eta accuracy would help as it tends to overestimate the time a little. Might need traffic calibration perhaps!
  • Most necessary app

    By Dwyatt1223
    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

    By Emilyyhuntleyy
    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!
  • Wonderful if it works

    By Niki_32
    I use public transit all the time to go to and from places, so naturally this app would be a necessity. That is, if it worked half the time I needed it too. More often than not there will be no times posted on my local transit only “No Prediction”. I’d use this app a lot more if it didn’t have this issue. When it actually does have the times listed they are usually accurate and precise.
  • Fantastic app

    By Victor356
    Have been using for about 2 years. I really like this app so far. The feature I like the most is the notifications when your bus is arriving even though is beta still. Sometimes the buses live location don’t update but for the most part accurate.

    just started using from Suffolk Long Island which is notorious here for having very bad public transport. this app seems very good so far. I wish there was a setting where I could only view the stops I favorite or my destination instead of all the stops and routes at once. also maybe a GPS feature that helps me. seems good so far though. will be very helpful for my daily life :)
