UTA tracker

UTA tracker


UTA tracker allows riders to take advantage of the Utah Transit Authority's vehicle monitoring and stop finding services.

UTA tracker also includes the ability to download route schedules.

UTA tracker allows you to define alerts for UTA routes and stops; get a notification when a vehicle on a specific route is approaching or arriving at a particular stop.

Please send me an email if you find a problem or if you have any comments or suggestions.

TRACKING

UTA's buses and trains report their locations every 15 seconds (Flex routes are not included).

TRAX and FrontRunner route numbers:
Blue line - 701
Red line - 703
Green line - 704
FrontRunner - 750

- Put in a route number and see all vehicles on that route, put in a stop number to see all buses serving that stop, or put in an individual vehicle number (printed inside and on the back of UTA buses).

ROUTE SCHEDULES

- You can request a route schedule for any UTA route by entering its number. Schedules can be viewed as origin/destination tables or on a map. On the map, see when the next bus/train is scheduled to arrive by tapping on a stop. See all times for that stop by tapping on the info window that appears.

CLOSE STOPS

- Select your current location or an address you enter or select on a map as a search location for UTA stops that are nearby. You can specify a maximum number of stops to return as well as an optional route filter.

ALERTS

- You can define alerts for when a UTA vehicle is approaching or arriving at a particular stop. These alerts are based on distance from the stop, using the shape of the route defined by UTA.

- Because these alerts depend on the vehicle following the shape defineUd by UTA, if the vehicle is on detour, or if the vehicle isn't following the defined route for some other reason, your alert may not trigger as expected.

DIRECTIONS

- Choose an origin, a destination, and the time you would like to either depart or arrive, and the Google Maps app will display the different options available using UTA's buses and trains.

VEHICLE SHARING

- On the share vehicle screen, enter your vehicle's number and tap the share button. This will let you send to a friend a message with a URL that will show them the progress of your vehicle in real time. The URL will open in UTA tracker if they have the app installed; it will open in any browser if they don't.

Other features:

- Choose a light or dark theme.
- Show satellite imagery and/or color-coded traffic data on the map.
- Optionally keep the map screen from dimming and shutting off.
- Adjust the update interval of UTA vehicle locations.
- Choose a custom ringtone for UTA alerts.

Recent changes:
v3.1.13
- Bug fixes, including a temporary fix for directions. Android's Geocoder API has a known issue with specifying an area to constrain auto-completed address results. I have removed the area constraint, so relevant results will be shown again. These results are not constrained to Utah only, so you may need to enter more of an address to see it in the results. I'll restore the area constraint when the problem is fixed on Google's end.

"Absoultley the finest" The very best of its kind. Simple, resourceful, and dependable. Until yesterday. It cut off my main route at around 10:30 am. period. And stupid me thinks UTA must be in trouble to have to cut that main route from Ogden to SLC.. I need it fixed. Even broken it's the best app out there.

Extremely helpful It's a relief to see that the bus is coming. Or if it's late, to be able to see how far away it is.

Quite confusing It is quite difficult to get to work. Would love a feature that let you simply see a schedule of the buses, rather than planning routes.

Best free app I used this app to stay warm on my car until I have to get out and catch the bus, has some issues some times but 98% of the time it works for me so I love it.

Love this app! Very useful! Love that it lists all stops so you can see exactly when the bus will be to pick you up!
