In case you missed it, here’s a little something to help you pass the time waiting for the bus – or help you actually find one to catch – in Vancouver.
The T-Comm site, run by local transit enthusiast Dennis Tsang, publishes a map showing the location of every single bus in Metro Vancouver in real time.
While TransLink will tell you the next bus due at your stop and show you your bus on a map, the T-Comm map shows you all the buses – all the time.
Tsang, who is also a software developer at A Thinking Ape, began working on the map a few years ago, using a feed of TransLink’s official real time bus data.
Not only has he created the map, but you can also grab a specific bus schedule for its current trip or the entire day, and the whole thing is optimized for mobile.
Perfect for whiling away that long wait for the bus. To get the whole, real-time bus map, go here: tcomm.bustrainferry.com/map.
