CTA Bus Tracker Program Goes Live: Estimated Arrivals, Real Time Data, Custom Alarms
The CTA Bus Tracker just went live today. While there are a set number of routes at the moment (more in May), you can do some pretty neat things like view the estimated arrival times for a particular stop.
Additionally, you can also check out a “street view,” showing the exact locations of buses in real time. There’s also a neat little popup feature, that allows you to set your own alarm for when a bus reaches a given stop on its route. While not terribly robust (it’s still part of a Java applet, and requires you to leave the popup window open/running), it’s still a neat feature that I’m sure will see some improvement.
