Patients, visitors and staff who seek care or work on our Archer Road campuses will no longer have to guess when our shuttles will arrive.
TransLoc Rider, a convenient and user-friendly app, tracks UF Health Shands shuttle routes to provide riders with convenience and safety. Accessed online or on mobile devices, it shows when shuttles will arrive at stops and displays routes in different colors. Users can even see bus icons moving in real time along the routes. Other features include stop locations and each shuttle’s seating capacity.
Access it on your mobile device: Search any app store for “TransLoc Rider.” You can also text “UF Health” and the location number of your stop (found on a route sign posted near each stop) to 41411.
“Instead of someone waiting outside in the dark, they can now wait in their car or indoors and walk to a shuttle stop right before the shuttle arrives,” said George Richardson, UF Health Shands Transportation and Parking manager.
TransLoc Rider is already used on UF’s main campus. Richardson said ridership will be easier for his team to track and if certain routes experience frequent full buses at a certain time, then another shuttle can be added.
