The new app includes many features that have quickly made it one of the most popular transit apps in Utah. For example, the user can start out by going to the website on the desktop and sending the link to his or her smartphone. A few of the features include:
- Generate alerts for specific bus stops and the app will send you a text message when the bus is 5 minutes away.
- Track the live locations of buses and trains throughout the system. If the bus is behind schedule, bus icon will change colors.
- Filter by route or location
