SETPA has a new online tool that allows riders to track bus and trolleys in real time. For instance, Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy residents can now see where the 23 Bus is at any given moment. When you click on TransitView you will see the bus icons is either red, blue or orange. Blue means the bus is headed north on Germantown Avenue, red is for southbound buses and orange means the bus is in service but not sending out a GPS signal.
The location of the bus is updated every three minutes. TransitView currently tracks all 116 bus routes plus 3 trackless trolley and 8 trolley lines.
