Track Your ART Bus -- With RealTime

July 9, 2010

Ever wonder where your ART bus is?  Want to know how many minutes it will be before the next one arrives?  Now you can easily track your ART bus right from the bus stop!

ART buses are equipped with GPS transponders and are tracked using the Connexionz RealTime Tracking system. The system predicts when buses will arrive at each ART bus stop.

Get real time arrival information for a stop near you by entering the RealTime number displayed on the bus sign. Stop numbers will be posted at every bus stop by the end of the summer.

How It Works:

  • Go to and click on the RealTime box on the lower right, or go directly to: [URL updated Nov. 2015]
  • Enter the 5-digit RealTime number (found on the bus stop sign or online map) and click the Search button.  You can also select by route & stop.
  • It will display the stop predictions for the next 45 minutes, as well as list other buses that will be arriving at that stop within the same time frame. 
  • Use the Refresh button in the upper right corner to receive the most up-to-date travel information.
  • Bookmark your stop to get RealTime information every day!
