- WolfTracks and Text FAQ's
How does the GPS system work?
Each shuttle driver carries a programed GPS smart-phone. The phones transmit necessary location data through our service provider, and the phones act as our passenger counter too. If you see the driver "using a cellphone," they are actually controlling different aspects of the GPS for their route.
What do the colors on the APP mean?
The colors signify the name of the shuttle route and correspond with printed material, making it easier to find the specific bus you might need.
- A colored dot with an arrow indicates which direction the bus is traveling.
- A colored dot with a square in the middle indicates the bus has stopped.
- Clicking on the dot will provide bus number and additional route information, including the next two stops with expected arrival times.
Why do shuttles occasionally move off their normal route(s)?
We strive to keep routes on time but occasionally excessive traffic delays (i.e. accidents or road closures) will force a driver off route. Also, occasional minor safety repairs (i.e. burned out bulbs, blown fuses) need to be quickly addressed by our Fleet Maintenance shop.
Why are certain routes not showing up on the tracker?
Sometimes the GPS smart-phone fails to communicate with our service provider. Once the driver is notified of the problem, a quick restart of the phone usually fixes the problem and all routes are back on-line.
Why didn't I get a reply text after sending a message to 41411?
It's likely that you may have entered the wrong TEXT ID. The ID's actually have a [space] been uaashuttle and the corresponding number. Please try again, and if you still have problems, contact the Transportation Office @ 907-786-6935.
How does the TEXT system work?
Like WolfTracks the text service is driven by the drivers programed GPS smart-phone. The phones transmit necessary location data through our service provider, and the phones act as our passenger counter. If you see the driver "using a cellphone," they are actually different aspects of the GPS for their route.
