Raleigh, NC – TransLōc has released a rider-centric iOS app appropriately called Rider. Rider combines all bus agency routes into one screen that shows you the location of the closest bus stop and when the buses will arrive. The user can set alerts so that they will be notified when the bus is arriving at the stop. No more hanging out at the bus stop to make sure that you don’t miss the next bus, you can sit and enjoy your coffee
What is TransLōc?
TransLōc’s mission is to revolutionize transit for riders.
TransLōc was founded in 2004 to empower mass transit agencies and riders with the best possible location technology. We combine innovative hardware with easy-to-use products to answer the questions that matter most: Where’s my bus? And when will it arrive at my stop?
Why Release Rider?
The new app gives a much better experience for the rider. With improvements in mobile technology TransLōc is able to build on these new platforms to provide an app that is 100% focused on the user.
TransLōc reports that the original app will be discontinued at some point in the future when the users have mostly migrated to the new app.
Rider is only available for the iOS platform at present, and TransLōc is working on releasing an Android version soon.
