The Regional Transportation District of Denver (RTD) last week launched a website application to enable rail riders to monitor and manage upcoming trips on the agency’s Access-a-Rider paratransit service.

The online portal enables riders to track their ride in real time, book new trips and cancel scheduled trips. 

The app is updated every 30 seconds using data from Mapbox — a mapping and location cloud platform that is aware of real-time traffic —to provide riders with a location and a more accurate estimated time of arrival of a paratransit vehicle, RTD officials said in a press release.
