Development Enhances Already Robust Product Portfolio
April 30, 2020, Durham, N.C., – TransLoc, a leader in mission-critical transit technology solutions, announced today the release of its multi-language app, the first of its kind in transit technology. The TransLoc app is the only transit app to offer multiple languages along with fixed route and on-demand services.
This development gives the Ford Mobility company* the ability to service customers and riders in nearly any language. Using best in class coding and app development to deploy this technology, TransLoc has helped make transit more accessible for millions of riders.
“A large number of transit users are non-native English speakers. They deserve a seamless transit experience as well,” said Ben Haynie, Vice President of Product for TransLoc, Ride Systems, and DoubleMap. “With the deployment of our multi-language app, this unlocks opportunity and mobility for them. We are able to help deliver, not only a smooth transit experience, but also increased access to opportunity.”
Riders can access the multi-language functionality of the app without any additional effort. Using a technology called localization, the app detects the language settings of a user’s phone to determine the language in which to service a user. Current languages include English and Spanish, but the company will continue to add additional languages as market demand increases.
The TransLoc app is available for iOS users in the Apple App Store and for Android users in the Google Play Store.
Hailed by Fast Company as one of the world’s most innovative companies in transportation, TransLoc joined forces with Ride Systems and DoubleMap under the Ford Mobility umbrella to provide an unparalleled platform of intelligent transportation software solutions. Now one of the largest providers of transportation technology offerings in the world, the group supplies integrated mobility solutions to 1,300+ customers in all 50 United States and across the globe.
