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.

This is not an official UTA app; I am not affiliated with UTA in any way.

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.

Full screen ads I guess "bug fixes" is slang for "it has full page ads now". I understand the desire to monetize, but sometimes it's not worth it if you annoy your users. I was fine with the small out of the way ads, but the full screen ads are annoying, and doubly so when I'm running to my bus stop trying to see where the next bus is.

Only 5 places to travel!? It would not let me put the address I was looking to go instead it would offer routes to an Indian reservation I could see how it would be helpful but for me it's not.

Was good, but more ads now. This did not have pop up ads before and no, I don't have nor have I ever had an ad blocker on my phone. I always saw the ads at the bottom of the screen, but now they're intrusive.

Would not give me routes Every time I tried to get a route, it would fill in some Indian reservation as the destination.

Best App UTA app out there for Android This is the best UTA app out there currently for Android. The developer clearly cares about it functioning and is very quick with any issues. The real-time tracking comes in very handy, and I find the rest relatively easy to use. Great Job
