Customers have asked for newer technology to help them track bus arrival times. It’s here. When Proposition A passed, Metro promised to use those funds to build a better transit experience. We are happy to report the first phase of technology advances to keep our MetroBus customers better informed about MetroBus arrivals is now live on our website.

Here’s how it works. Go to our website.  Look for the Plan Your Trip area near the top right of your screen and select Metro Trip Planner. Then you have two choices.

  1. Use the left side of the screen to use trip planner the way you always have, or
  2. Use the map to click on your departure location.  A box will appear and allow you to click on “Find nearby stops.”  From there you can:

We are really excited to be able to bring this new technology to our customers, but we won’t stop there. In the next year, we hope to roll out the smart phone application. That will mean you can stand at your bus stop, punch in the stop number on your smart phone and find out when to expect your bus.

Enjoy the ride, and thanks for taking Metro!
