Transportation and Parking Services is excited to announce the availability of a new free TigerTransit tracking app for iOS and Android—TransLoc Rider. TransLoc Rider enables you to better track TigerTransit buses and schedule On-Demand service between 10:00 pm and 3:00 am.
Riders can now request On-Demand service right from the app during On-Demand hours. After creating an account, users can select a pick-up and drop-off location (based on their current location, or from a drop-down menu of previous locations) and an On-Demand bus is dispatched. The app provides notifications confirming receipt of the request and also when the bus has arrived at the pick-up location.
