Real-time Bus Information System
Starting Monday, August 4, Calgary Transit customers can expect to see and hear announcements for major stops onboard our buses. Earlier this summer, Calgary Transit successfully tested this component with out-of-service buses and they are now ready to see how the system performs on our entire fleet while in service. Although, Calgary Transit doesn’t anticipate major discrepancies between what is announced/displayed and the stop location, minor adjustments may be needed.
What will the real-time bus information system do?
When fully implemented, the real-time bus information system will not only provide stop announcements on buses but also real-time bus arrival times. Currently only scheduled bus times are available to customers. The real-time bus arrival information will eventually be available through our new mobile-friendly website, teletext and teleride. This information will also be available early next year on a mobile app.
The real-time bus arrival information component of the system will be tested this fall and the full system is expected to launch later this year.
