Bus Online Tracking

Transloc

Transloc information is not a static schedule listing — it is actual arrival information, updated at regular intervals. Because traffic variations, breakdowns, and day-to-day problems faced by any transit provider can interrupt service, Transloc was designed to keep you on schedule even if your bus or train isn't. From the comfort and security of a protected place, you can learn when the next bus will arrive at your stop. Transloc uses satellite technology and advanced computer modeling to track vehicles on their routes. Each vehicle is fitted with a satellite tracking system. Click here to find your Transloc. Get on the bus and track your bus live! The Rider app puts you in control with real-time tracking so you'll never miss your bus again. Visit: Transloc or download the app for Iphones or Android phones free from the iTunes store or Google Play store. 

Paratransit Services

The Department of Transportation Services (DOTS) at Rutgers provides a comprehensive transit system which serves all destinations on the New Brunswick/Piscataway campuses. All of our campus buses are equipped to handle individuals with mobility impairments and have low entrance steps and/or mechanical platforms for wheelchair accessibility.

For students who require accessible transportation who cannot utilize the typical campus bus service for a particular reason due to a temporary or permanent disability, Rutgers offers a paratransit van. To be considered for this additional van service please click here.
