DENVER — The Denver Regional Transportation District has launched a new web app that features real-time vehicle locations and arrival predictions for its services. The ‘next ride’ app updates the location of light rail trains every 30 seconds using a web-based platform that is accessible on the agency’s website.

Unlike other apps where users have to download via the App Store or Google Play, the agency’s new transit locator is embedded into the website and does not require an additional download. Users can access either from a computer or mobile device.

Transit managers say the new service can only provide location information for buses and light rail vehicles right now. Services are not yet available for commuter rail, which includes the University of Colorado A Line and the B Line.

More information is available online.
