— February 26, 2014

Utah.gov announced a free app for Google Glass, calling it the "first of it's kind." OnTime for Glass, is a transit-tracking app for Google Glass that can be downloaded for free at http://ontime.utah.gov.

“OnTime for Glass brings Glassware to transit riders in a unique app that notifies them when their vehicle is approaching,” said David Fletcher, Utah chief technology officer. “OnTime for Glass is the most recent example of our long-standing innovation in web and mobile applications that help the citizens of Utah. Wearable technology is a huge opportunity to provide better online experiences for our citizens. And where better to focus than on mobile services where so much of what we do today can be augmented by technology.”

Key capabilities the app include: Notifications for an approaching train or bus, view of route information and tracking of real-time, public transportation vehicle location.

Utah is the first state website to create an app for Google Glass. The Google Glass Explorer Program is designed for developers and consumers who want to get involved early and help shape the future of Glass.
