Transit Tools

 

Take the guesswork out of waiting for the bus. Centro's real-time bus tracking tools use GPS technology to pinpoint the exact location of your bus and when it will arrive at your stop. Real-time bus tracking is a feature of Centro's suite of Transit Tools designed to make riding the bus easier and more accessible for everyone.

Please note: estimated arrival times are only available for buses arriving within 30 minutes.
