Intelligent transportation system and service provider, DoubleMap, received the Mobile Tech Award for its online bus tracking application during the 15th annual TechPoint Mira Awards honoring the best of tech in Indiana. The Indianapolis-based startup company allows riders to track the exact location of a bus in real-time.

DoubleMap provides a web application accessible through any web browser, native apps for both the Android and iPhone, as well as a mobile version. In addition to the tracking application, DoubleMap supplies transit authorities with an intuitive administration panel and a multitude of reports for managing their fleet’s efficiency.

With more than 1.2 million daily users in 10 North American cities and on 40 college campuses, DoubleMap is bringing a new level of convenience, safety and route optimization to public transit through mobile technology.

The Mira Awards judges recognize the adeptness with which DoubleMap has addressed both its B2B and B2C constituents with mobile tech that is easy to setup and install for transit authorities and easy to understand and use for riders.

This impressive mobile startup is solving problems for businesses and consumers with their “connected world, Internet of things” approach and technologies. DoubleMap is also delivering its customers valuable mobile tech analytics that help them secure transit grants, which helps to fortify the business model and extend the mobile tech investment.


TechPoint, Indiana’s technology growth initiative, honored DoubleMap and 14 other Indiana-based companies, entrepreneurs and educators for their technology excellence and innovation on May 3, at the Mira Awards gala presented by BKD CPAs & Advisors. Mira — Latin for miracle and a variable star thousands of times brighter than the Earth’s sun — represents the best of tech in Indiana each year.

Forty-eight independent, volunteer judges spent more than 700 collective hours reviewing the applications, interviewing the nominees and choosing the 15 winners. Judges were primarily subject matter experts and experienced company executives.
