OC Bus Tracker is a mobile web app that allows Ottawa transit goers to view accurate
arrival times based on onboard bus GPS coordinates and leverages the City of Ottawa's
Next Bus Arrival Data
Since it's launch on March 27th, 2012 the response from the community has been nothing
short of amazing. We've received hundreds of emails letting us know how they use
the app and also suggestions on how to improve it. We committed to responding to
every email we've received (if we inadvertently missed you please -
Contact Us) and all suggestions were evaluated with many being incorporated
into the new version you see now.
Below are a few examples of the kind words from OC Bus Tracker users:
First up - we're going to try and put the word out a little more about this free
service for Ottawantonians'. OC Bus Tracker does get used a lot but we think there are still many who haven't heard
about it that may benefit from it.
Next, OC Bus Tracker is going global!...sort of. What started off
as a simple web app for Ottawa residents has been rebuilt to adapt to a multitude
of open data formats including real-time open data transit information for Winnipeg,
Toronto, Laval, Boston and San Francisco. We plan on launching OCBusTracker across
these other cities early in the New Year. Stay tuned!
