About PAT Track

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

Current Features:
• select up to 10 buses at one time
• see the the buses move on the map in realtime
• clicking on the bus will give its ETA to its next 8 stops
• see the bus stops for selected routes when zoomed in at a certain level
• clicking on stops shows ETAs to buses for all currently selected buses

Port Authority has released their realtime tracking API from this website (http://truetime.portauthority.org/bustime/home.jsp). This means that the data we relay to you is official. As of December 2015, the app now tracks 99 buses and 1 shuttle!

This app is open source: https://github.com/rectangle-dbmi/Realtime-Port-Authority/

Recent news will be posted on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PATRealtimeTracker

DISCLAIMER: We are not responsible for which buses and routes are being tracked as we are only getting the information from Port Authority. If a certain route or bus is not on our app, this is most likely not our fault but of Port Authority. If the map is empty, please report this to our Play Store email or create an issue on our Github above immediately.
