In its first major update since launching in 2013, tonight SEPTA will roll out a new version of its mobile app, promising users a more customized experience.

At 10 p.m., update your existing app — or download it — to get the latest version of the app for iOS and Android systems.

“The new app was built with customer comments and feedback received in mind,” the transit authority said. “It offers greater ease to check schedules and find service information.”

The key feature in the new app is the Real Time Vehicle Locator which shows the most recent location update for Regional Rail trains, updated every 30 seconds. SEPTA’s also testing the real time updates for buses and trolleys — a feature initially promised for 2016 — and expects to roll that feature on the app once testing concludes.

In the new app, users will find an updated version of the TransitView tracking tool which will give riders “a visual and interactive way to track when your train will arrive,” said SEPTA.

Your move, Douglas Muth.
