Mobile Access

Oakland University’s Bear Bus system offers a free and convenient service that helps campus riders minimize their wait times in cold and inclement conditions.

Students, faculty and staff looking to make their way quickly across campus can now download a mobile app that provides real-time, GPS tracking of the Bear Bus system’s four shuttle vehicles. A free, web-based version of the software also is available.

Displaying shuttle locations on a campus map with three shuttle routes highlighted, the TransLoc Transit Visualization software can provide users with an estimated time of arrival for the next shuttle at any stop.

For riders who do not use smart phones, the tracking system will respond to text message requests for the estimated arrival time of the next shuttle at any stop. In addition, all app users receive updates and special announcements that will help them plan their shuttle usage.

For more information on how to download the mobile app, access the system via your tablet or laptop, or utilize the system via text message, visit the Oakland University Transloc Page.
