Real Time Bus Tracking

The smart way to travel

Bus tracking tools use GPS technology to pinpoint the exact location of your bus and when it will arrive at your stop

Real-time bus tracking is a feature of Oakville Transit’s Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) designed to make riding the bus easier and more accessible for everyone.

Estimated arrival times are only available for buses arriving within 30 minutes.

Transit tips


Delays due to road detours, traffic incidents, construction, weather or equipment problems may affect the accuracy of estimated arrival times.

If your bus is delayed, estimated arrival times will automatically adjust accordingly. For example, if your bus is estimated to arrive in 10 minutes but is delayed by a traffic incident, the estimated arrival time of 10 minutes will stay the same until the bus begins moving again.

Connecting services
