New app for real-time shuttle tracking
UTA's new real-time tracking app for shuttle buses is TapRide by DoubleMap. The new app will provide more accurate arrival times. Download for free from GooglePlay or iTunes. The Transloc tracking app will be active until Wednesday, Jan. 31.
You also can use the TapRide by DoubleMap app to request courtesy escort rides, similar to Uber. This on-demand, point-to-point service operates on campus 7 p.m.-3 a.m. seven days a week. The service is available to all UTA students, staff, and faculty with an active NetID.
