About this app

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

Transit Tracker - Utah allows riders to take advantage of the Utah Transit Authority's vehicle monitoring and stop finding services.

Transit Tracker - Utah also includes the ability to download route schedules.

Transit Tracker - Utah 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 defined 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.


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 alerts.

Much better than the official app UTA partnered with, which is complicated and convoluted. In contrast, this app is simple and provides accurate schedules. Only issue is when using the back button after selecting a route, it gives you an error message. It still seems to work even after that.

Usually this app works good but today it keeps telling me no results found when I try to track a route regardless of which route

As others have said, it does crash often but it re starts up fast. Errors in routes and stop location appear occasionally, but that's probably the fault of the bus system's db. That being said, I give it 5 stars. Much better than the UTA app, and I use it every workday that I don't ride the bike to work.
