Bus Finder

Photo: Connexionz BusFinderBusFinders are the green boxes installed at about 70 selected ART stops throughout Arlington. The Connexionz system tracks the location of buses along the route and sends the estimated arrival time of the next bus to the BusFinder.

To use the BusFinder, place your thumb on the circle for your route on the BusFinder. The red light will start to flash in the circle as the BusFinder receives real-time information. Within about 30 seconds, the BusFinder will indicate how many minutes away the bus is from your stop.

For stops served by multiple bus routes, you can switch between routes to display times for both buses. The indicator goes up to 28 minutes, so if the bus is more than 28 minutes away, the BusFinder will display “Refer to Timetable.”
