About the program

  • If multiple routes serve the stop, the automatic reply will include arrival times for all the routes servicing that stop. If you’d like to know about a specific route, be sure to type in the route number after the bus stop number, like this: “7694 2”, where “2” is the route number.
  • If the stop ID does not match the stop ID in our database, the system will respond with an error message. The valid response clarifies the stop name, route name, route direction, and the number of minutes away of the transit vehicles.
