Bettendorf Transit Announces New Rider-Friendly Website and App

There is a new way to SPOT a Bettendorf Transit Bus! The City of Bettendorf is excited to announce a new intelligent transit system (ITS) for riders called SPOT®.

SPOT® includes a website and phone app (for both Apple and Android users). It was created by ETA Transit Systems and can also be used by Davenport Citibus riders and replaces the Transloc system.

“Having Citibus on the same system gives riders the added benefit of only needing one website or app to plan their trip across the Iowa Quad Cities,” said Mark Garrow, Bettendorf Transit/Garage Manager. “SPOT® is very easy to use and will provide our riders with a tool to make their ride stress-free.”

With SPOT®, riders can now track buses in real-time, get up to the minute arrival times, customize their own alerts, and navigate multiple stops and routes.

“SPOT® sits at the forefront of modern transportation tracking and analytics,” said John Maglio, ETA Transit Systems President. “With its open architecture, cloud-based platform, SPOT® delivers the best of both worlds – customization and expansion that allows Bettendorf Transit and Davenport Citibus to better serve both their riders and employees.”
