Never again wonder when the bus will arrive – track your ride with the new CitiBus real time transit rider app. 

 

Transloc, a web and app accessible program, lets riders track where their bus is in real time and get information for trip planning. Riders can sign up for timely notifications and alerts about significant route changes and detours when they occur, and be connected to route detail for travel on both Davenport CitiBus and Metro with just one app.

 

The Transloc Rider app can be downloaded free at the Apple Store and on Google Play.
