We’re thrilled to release a beta version of our real-time bus location data to the app development community. The real-time technology on board our fleet means that we’re able to track each and every bus in the network. The departure data we collect will help us with route planning and scheduling, improving the rider experience for everyone.
The real-time open data service is currently in beta release only as we tune the technology to make sure the location data is as accurate as possible. During this test phase, we may need to take the service down temporarily if any issues arise.
We will announce that the data is fully operational once the beta phase is complete, so you can have reliable departures information in the palm of your hand.
Stay tuned to halifax.ca/transit for more updates.
