Airdrie Transit is pleased to announce the launch of real-time bus tracking and a mobile app for transit customers through a partnership between Airdrie Transit and TransLoc.

The addition of real-time transit information through TransLoc allows riders to know the location and arrival time of their bus at any point along the route. This puts riders in control of their schedule by minimizing wait time and avoiding anxiety over missed buses. The information can be accessed in real time from a web browser, SMS or smartphone.

"Airdrie Transit is embracing new technologies that meet the growing needs of our customers," says Chris MacIsaac, Transit Coordinator. "Real-time transit information will provide our customers with an enhanced better public transit experience and has the potential to attract new customers to our services."

In addition to knowing exactly where their bus is, riders can now receive alerts when their bus is arriving and easily plan around schedule changes or unexpected errands.

Check out the Airdrie Transit buses moving in real-time at airdrietransit.transloc.com or download the rider app now for iPhone or Android (transloc.com/app).
