Where's My Bus?

March 16, 2011

March 16, 2011 -- A new web tool for ART makes it easy to find out when the next bus will arrive at your bus stop. You can even bookmark the information so you can easily go back and check the arrival time for your bus whenever you want.

  • Access the Platform Estimated Time tool on your smartphone or desktop
  • Enter in the stop number for your bus stop
  • Platform Estimated Time will show when the next ART bus will arrive at your stop. It will show arrival information for all ART buses that use that bus stop.
  • Bookmark the page so you can get arrival information whenever you want. Just hit the refresh button for the most recent arrival times.

Don't know the bus stop number?

Bus stop numbers (also known at RealTime numbers) can be found on the green bus stop flag at the bus stops.

If you're not at your stop, you can use ART's interactive bus stop map to find out what the stop number is. Click on the route you use and then find your bus stop on the map and click on it.  Information about the stop will appear, including the stop number.

ART has several other web tools that make riding the bus easy:

Point-to-Point allows you to create a customized bus schedule and tells you which bus to take to your destination.

Layar shows you where the nearest ART bus stop is and directs you there.

ART RealTime tells you when the next ART bus will arrive at your stop.

You can also follow ART on Facebook and Twitter to receive service alerts and important information about ART.
