UGA app has Athens transit tracker

The official mobile app for UGA now includes a real-time bus tracker for Athens Transit, making it easier for students, faculty, staff and visitors to travel between campus and the surrounding Athens-Clarke County community.

Since its initial launch in 2013, the UGA mobile app’s most popular feature for students has been a bus tracker for Campus Transit. Now, Athens Transit buses are included in the app, which tracks buses and displays schedules of when buses are expected to arrive at each stop.

The UGA mobile app also includes a map of campus with the ability to select points of interest, such as computer labs, parking decks, bike repair stations and print kiosks. The UGA mobile app is free to download and is available in the App Store for Apple devices and Google Play for Android devices.

UGA students, faculty and staff can ride Athens Transit buses for no charge by presenting their UGACard. The university and Athens-Clarke County government have a long-standing agreement to provide transportation for UGA students and employees on Athens Transit.

The app is a collaboration between the Student Government Association and Enterprise Information Technology Services. Other campus partners include Auxiliary Services, the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, the Office of the Vice President for Instruction, the Office of Sustainability, the Office of Emergency Preparedness, Career Center, Admissions Office, Registrar’s Office, Designated Dawgs, the Athletic Association and Public Affairs.
