Find the actual arrival time of your bus

There are multiple ways to find your bus arrival time on the Oakville Transit app:

  • Select Buses, Stops or Routes feature
  • Or use the stop selector from the menu

Find the location of your bus

Select the desired route. The route that has been selected will be highlighted and will show the current location of the bus.

Find the closest bus stop to your location

The “stops near me” feature shows all stops within 450 metres of your current location.

Receive service alerts and arrival notifications

Choose “My Alerts” from the menu to set up an account. Once you have an account you can set up alerts based on the specific criteria you provide. 

Select your stop, the time you want the alert to arrive, and check if you want it to come via email and/or text message. 

You can go in any time to add, delete or edit your alerts. Note: standard text charges may apply.

Find a stop using the app

Use the search function to enter the stop name (e.g. Trafalgar Road + White Oaks Boulevard) or the stop number (e.g. 3003). 

A stop can also be located by using the “Stop Selector” feature within the app.

Save or add a stop as your favourite

There are two ways:

  1. Use the app’s “Favourites” feature
  2. Select the stop you want to be saved as a favourite and then select the star that is above the estimated arrival times. A star will appear beside the route name and number. Tap on the star to add the stop to your favourites.

Remove routes that you've selected

Routes can be removed by selecting the Route button found on the map. A list of all routes will appear. Select the route you want to remove. 

You can also select the “Remove All” button to remove all the selected routes at once. If this does not work, you may need to refresh the page and try again.
