New Bus Tracking App for iOS Users

TransLōc has released a reimagined version of their original transit visualization app used by many Tiger Trails riders to track their bus.  The new iOS app, TransLōc Rider, features an improved search function and the ability to set alerts for upcoming buses.  Built with iOS 7 in mind, TransLōc Rider is available exclusively for iPhone users at this time.  An Android version is currently in development.

TransLōc Rider can be downloaded on iTunes here.  The existing TransLōc app (with the green logo) will continue to work for the time being, and we will alert Tiger Trails riders if this service is canceled.
