DCTA launching 'Where's My Ride' tracking tool

Posted on January 14, 2015

Beginning Monday, Texas’ Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) will launch “Where’s My Ride,” a vehicle tracking tool that provides real-time travel information to passengers, allowing them to obtain predictive arrival information for a Connect bus or A-train at a particular stop location via phone, online and mobile devices.

Unlike a mobile application, Where’s My Ride is an integrated Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), developed by Strategic Mapping, that uses accurate location data provided by a GPS device that is mounted inside each DCTA Connect bus and A-train railcar.

Users can receive notifications of bus or train arrival time, call in to hear arrival times and track vehicles in real time with Where’s My Ride, which integrates location, route and bus/train information with schedules and maps to provide passengers with the most accurate arrival predictions possible.
