Shuttle Bus Tracking

 
  WCU has partnered with DoubleMap to provide real time tracking of the Shuttle Buses on the web or a smartphone.
   
o Watch the buses move on the map in real time
o Know when your bus will arrive
o Stay out of the weather to watch for the bus
o Color coded bus icons
o See bus related announcements
o Works with desktops, laptops, & smart phones

 
      Students no longer have to wonder where the bus is while waiting at the bus stop. Now there's an app for that! The WCU shuttle buses now have GPS tracking using DoubleMap. Students can see the location of the shuttles in real time on the web or a smart phone. This free service will eliminate the guesswork and worry about where the buses are and when one will arrive. With color coded routes and icons, it is easy to distinguish between Express, Q Lot, and All Stops buses. Bus related announcements concerning shuttle delays, cancellation of service due to weather, and holiday service can also be viewed.
 
      DoubleMap is an Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) system. Devices are mounted in the buses which continuously send out GPS signals and the data is refreshed every one to two seconds. The rapid update process allows the viewer to track the bus' actual location and plan when to go to the bus stop. The app displays a Google Map with an overlay of bus routes and bus icons. What other app can save you time, increase reliability, reduce anxiety, and minimize your exposure to lousy weather conditions?
 
      Students, faculty, and staff can download a free app for either iPhone or Android phones. Visit the App Store or Google Play and search "DoubleMap". Once installed, select "West Chester University" from the listing under "Configuration" and then select the bus route you would like to view. The app works equally well on Wi-Fi connected tablets. It's simple to connect from a laptop by entering http://westchester.doublemap.com/map.
 
      Email comments or concerns to shuttle @ wcupa.edu or call the Transportation office at 610‑436‑1053 or 610‑436‑2442.
