Updated: Aug 6, 2021


JULY 21, 2021


Beginning Aug. 9, AppalCART will use the TransLoc mobile application for real-time bus location and passenger information. The TransLoc app is available on the Google Play and Apple App stores (Simply search for TransLoc).

“The new TransLoc app offers improvements that we feel will better serve our passengers,” said AppalCART Director Craig Hughes. “Passengers can expect increased responsiveness and a more user-friendly interface with the new mobile app, and we appreciate the patience of our passengers as we transition to the new system to better serve our passengers.”

AppalCart will discontinue its contract with NextBus as of July 22. From July 22 – Aug. 9, real-time schedules will not be available. Fixed route bus schedules can be found at (Scroll down to the Break Schedule section.)

AppalCART will return to its regular schedule on Monday, August 16, 2021, the first day of classes for Appalachian State University. Updates regarding the new mobile app and the fall AppalCART schedule will be shared as the start of the fall semester at App State approaches.
