Customers can track the physical location of their bus using Metro Transit's Map It!  tool.Customers can track approaching buses or trains in real time using a feature called Show My Bus. The feature can be accessed through Metro Transit's app or website. Links are found on route schedule pages and through NexTrip. In the app, select Trip Tools, then Routes & Schedules, select your route, choose any additional filters you wish to apply, then choose Show My Bus.

Show My Bus shows the location of at least one approaching bus or train, as well as the route number and direction of travel. Locations automatically refresh as vehicles move. 

Show My Bus was introduced in 2017 as part of an ongoing effort to improve Metro Transit’s NexTrip system, which provides predicted departure times.

“We wanted to provide transit information in the way that customers want to see it, and this is one of those ways,” said Ben Rajkowski, Assistant Manager-Transit Information.
