TUCSON, AZ – Sun Shuttle and the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) have launched the TransLoc® Rider app for Sun Shuttle passengers. The transit mobile app provides users with access to real-time information using their smartphone to make traveling on Sun Shuttle easier than ever.

With the TransLoc Rider app, passengers can locate the nearest Sun Shuttle vehicle in real time and stay informed with accurate arrival predictions. Smart search enables riders to quickly locate specific routes and stops. Passengers can easily set favorite routes and stops, and receive notifications regarding system-wide service announcements.

The TransLoc Rider app is available for download on both iOS and Android and features an intuitive design and interface.

“The Rider app is designed for the way people travel, which means our passengers can quickly find their shuttle and be on their way,” said Steve Hamelin, General Manager for Sun Shuttle. “We are thrilled to work with TransLoc to make Sun Shuttle more accessible and user-friendly than ever.”

Sun Shuttle is the region’s neighborhood transit service funded by the RTA, serving Marana, Oro Valley, Catalina, Rita Ranch, Sahuarita, Green Valley, San Xavier, Ajo and Tucson Estates.
