UTA tracker+ is an ad-free version of UTA tracker with a few additional features.

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.

TWITTER

- UTA tracker displays the latest updates from @RideUta.

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.
- Add track and route widgets and shortcuts to your home screen to go straight to the map or schedule you want.

Recently changed in this version

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.

    UPDATE: The new UI that accompanied version 3.* is much less clear cut than the earlier versions making my time with the app much less productive. ORIGINAL REVIEW: 5 stars: This app has clean, attractive and direct UI that is easy to use. The alert feature is especially handy and the connection to Google maps for route info is also well made.

    I've used this app since it came out. It's getting better with each upgrade. I do think there's room for improvement, but I also know that this particular one is far better than all the others recommended on UTA's website including IOS versions as I saw them while helping a friend try to locate this particular one.

    A must have to tell how late you might be here in Utah! Very accurate and consistently works. A definite must, if you use the UTA!
