PVTA Real-time Bus Information
PVTA is introducing real-time bus information data. The system works with GPS technology and allows PVTA to track the buses and provide you with real-time departure information. The real-time data will allow you to see approximately when a bus is departing from your stop. However, this technology is currently in beta test. We ask that you adhear to the scheduled departure times as closely as possible since we are still testing the information at this time.
We have rolled out the real-time data starting with the UMass Transit and Northampton Area routes. If your route does not yet have real-time data, you can still view the regular schedule departures times.
Please note that the scheduled departure times (sdt) are approximate. Although the buses make every effort to not depart a stop early, it is a possibility. The PVTA recommends arriving at your stop ten minutes before a departure time.
If you have any comments concerning the real-time bus information or if you are interested in development using the real-time feed data, please use this form below:
