Real-Time Bus Tracking and OnCall Demand Programs

The Office of Parking and Transportation introduces improved technology that tracks shuttles in real-time and offers enhanced safe-ride on-call demand service.

Wake Forest Parking & Transportation adopted a new app this spring that it encourages all shuttle riders to download and begin using immediately.  The app is designed to make the shuttle service more convenient for all riders, including those who take advantage of the OnCall service launched last fall.

The TransLoc Rider app replaces the RidetheWake app that has been associated with Wake Forest’s shuttle system for years.  Parking & Transportation asks that shuttle riders drop use of the old app now in favor of using the new one.

One of the most significant advantages of the TransLoc rider app is that it provides riders with real-tracking of the shuttles in service.  Riders know where the shuttles are and when they are expected to arrive.

For those using the OnCall service, also known as Safe Ride, here are some advantages of the new app:

  • Replaces calling a cell phone for a ride
  • Use the TransLocRider app to schedule a safe ride from your smart phone
  • Safe ride available Monday – Sunday 5:30 p.m. – 7 a.m.
