TransLoc, a provider of transportation technology, along with partners GoTriangle and Uber, launched a pilot of TransLoc Rider with Uber in Durham, N.C. The Rider mobile app helps people get to and from the bus stop with ease to make transit more accessible.

One of the biggest barriers to taking public transportation for many is the distance to and from a transit stop. With TransLoc Rider users simply enter their destination to get the best route, one that combines walking, transit and Uber. The app makes the experience seamless; it even hails and books the Uber.

“As a company devoted to innovation, Uber believes that integrating with TransLoc is a positive step towards providing safe and reliable rides for all at the touch of a button,” said Raj Naik, GM for Uber North Carolina. “It will help more commuters and users of public transportation bridge the first- and last-mile gaps in their routes."
