Your personal Guide to Public Transit

If you have ever waited for a bus or train wonder “How much longer until it gets here?” there are a few websites to answer that question.  GPS technology is now linked to many transit systems and is tracked by some website (and costly smart phone apps).

Here are some of the free website versions:

  • NextBus is available for many bus systems in a variety of states and Canada.
  • BusMinder can be set-up to send reminders to your smart phone.
  • NextTrain has the schedule for a variety of train systems around the country. Apparently Boston’s Subway system is not yet equipped for this technology 😦 Hopefully your subway system is included.
  • Check the website for your local transit systems for live updates of arrivals.
