Utah.govUtah’s state website has launched a transit-tracking application for Google Glass, the first state government wearable technology app intended to enable citizens using public transportation to track vehicle location and route.

Utah.gov created OnTime for Glass as part of the Google Glass Explorer Program looking for contributions from developers and consumers, the website said on Feb. 25.

“Wearable technology is a huge opportunity to provide better online experiences for our citizens,” said David Fletcher, Utah’s chief technology officer.

“Where better to focus than on mobile services where so much of what we do today can be augmented by technology,” Fletcher added.

Users of the OnTime app can receive alerts of an approaching bus or train and real-time updates of a vehicle’s location.
