See Bus Locations in Real Time with Google Transit Integration

Today, Beaver County Transit Authority has completed integration with Google Transit, allowing all riders to see the location of all BCTA busses in real time. These new technologies will make it even easier for the residents of Beaver County to plan and organize their trips with BCTA. By visiting bctabustracker.com, viewers can plan a trip, or visit the maps tab and see where each bus is in real time.

Bus Tracker: New implemented Bus Tracker technology tracks bus locations straight from any mobile device that can send and receive text messages. These alerts send information on when the next bus will depart from each stop, allowing riders to always know when they need to be at their stop. Riders simply text the Stop ID and Route # to 724-302-5076 and follow the prompts.

Interactive Map: Building a transit itinerary is even easier with BCTA data available on Google Transit. Riders can now view BCTA routes on an interactive map, and see exactly where each bus is at that moment. Visit http://www.bcta.com for more information.

Trip Planner: Using the new interactive trip planner, riders can now input origin, destination, date and time of travel and the BCTA Trip Planner will find the most convenient route. Adding even more value, the Trip Planner goes outside of BCTA’s own service area. By partnering with neighboring transit authorities, Trip Planner helps plan trips to places like the University of Pittsburgh, Ross Park Mall, Carnegie Science Center and more.

About BCTA: BCTA is working toward advancing new technology to offer greater convenience to our customers.
