How the online Transit App works
The City of Sarnia has partnered with the Transit App to provide real time bus information. You can use the app to track the location of your bus in real time, see departure times for nearby bus routes, and review various route options to reach your destination. It can be used to remind you of when you need to leave to catch your bus, and while on the bus, notify you of when your stop is approaching. The app is available for free for both android and iPhone. Just search “Transit” in the app store. The app is simple to use. A brief user manual provides and introduction in how to use the app.
The purpose of the online application is to help you find the departure times for buses in the City of Sarnia. The Transit APP on the website uses Google maps to identify your current location via your web browser. The application displays upcoming departures times for all routes within 500 meters of your current location. Each route displays the next three departure times when you rest your cursor over any route. (While using the APP location services will need to be turned ON and data is required.)
Want to find a bus route close to work or near a friend?
To look-up the arrival time(s) for buses that are more than 500 meters from your current location type the name of an attraction (e.g. Canatara Park), a major intersection (e.g. Front & Lochiel) or street address (e.g. 2713 Old Lakeshore Road) into the search field above the routes. The easiest way to display the routes nearest your current location is by clicking on the bullseye on the right hand side of the search bar.
