Transloc honored by White House as ‘Champion of Change’

Posted on May 21, 2013

TransLoc Inc. was honored by the White House as a Champion of Change for their leadership in rider-facing transit technology.

TransLoc’s technology makes using transit easier by providing live bus tracking via mobile applications and the web. Founder/CEO Josh Whiton accepted the award at the White House on TransLoc’s behalf.

TransLoc was nominated by a Federal Transit Administration official for “having an incredibly positive and widespread impact on the way people think about and use public transit…[they are] making it easier and more convenient for transit riders to access real time information about the location of buses and it encourages people to take public transit.”

Through the Champions of Change program, the White House recognizes different groups of Americans who are making positive change in their communities. This year’s theme is Transportation Technology Solutions for the 21st Century. The Champions of Change event focused on individuals and organizations that have provided exemplary leadership in developing and implementing transportation technology solutions to enhance performance, reduce congestion, improve safety, and facilitate communication across the transportation industry at the local, state or national level.

TransLoc powers GoLive (live.gotriangle.org), America’s first unified regional passenger information platform, according to the company.
