Ever been frustrated at Pittsburgh's bus schedule? Ever get annoyed that the buses never come on time? Why not simply plan your transportation around Pittsburgh, PA, based on realtime tracking!

Current Features:

Port Authority has launched their realtime tracking API from this web site (http://truetime.portauthority.org/bustime/home.jsp). This means that the information we relay to you is official. As of December 2015, the app now tracks ninety nine buses and 1 shuttle!

If a certain route or bus isn't on our app, that is most probably not our fault but of Port Authority. If the map is empty, please report this to our Play Store e-mail or create an issue on our Github above instantly.
