MyBus

MyBus provides mobile-friendly access to real-time transit information, through an app and a responsive website.

About MyBus

MyBus was originally launched in February 2019 as a mobile-friendly website as part of the system-wide intelligent transit initiative. MyBus allows users to look up schedules, get up to date departure times and see where their bus is in real-time with GPS tracking.

The next phase of MyBus is the development of an app, that is now available for Apple and Android operating systems. The app provides the same functionality as the mobile website, in an app format.

Key features of MyBus include:
