ART RealTime arrival estimates are also available for ART buses that are less than 45 minutes away. There are additional bus stops between the timepoints, usually about two blocks apart. Look for Metrobus and ART bus stop signs along the route. The bus stop signs will have route numbers indicating which routes serve each stop.
