TransitCrowd

TransLoc Inc.
Currently, TransitCrowd is only available for an early preview at North Carolina State University.

TransitCrowd is an app that lets riders communicate with each other about what is happening on their bus routes. Riders can alert each other when they see the bus, whether it is coming early or late, and any extraordinary events that during transit. By facilitating this communication, TransitCrowd allows riders to make more informed decisions about using the public transit system and doing so more enjoyable.

When a rider installs the TransitCrowd app and registers a username, they can find nearby stops, and read as well as post messages about those stops and routes. Through these short text messages, riders will be able to quickly alert each other as to the location and the state of the bus. For example, one rider might post a message saying that the bus is full, letting riders at upcoming stops make other arrangements.

TransitCrowd is a product and a social experiment. We at TransLoc want to see whether riders communicating through short text messages could make it easier to use a transit system by providing real-time information to each other. After the initial release we are planning on adding community ratings, moderation tools and integration with announcements from transit agency administrators.
Our verdict: Ok
  • = TransitCrowd has no ratings yet.
  • + The app is free.
