version 1.8.10

Live in DC and ride the bus, rail, streetcar, or Circulator? BusTrackDC tells you when the next one arrives!

Unfortunately, BusTrackDC is no longer working

The DC Circulator and the company that provided its datafeeds, Cubic, has unceremoniously and without warning removed Circulator data from public availability, meaning BusTrackDC is now broken and returns errors when loading.

This app has always been a volunteer project, and I have not lived in DC for over five years now, having moved to California. I am unable to update the app with the resources I have available. The app, however, is open source, and I'd be happy to transfer ownership to someone who wants to take it over. Feel free to reach out at seminal@theseminal.com if you are interested.

Thank you for the support over the years, and I hope that while it lasted, this app was useful to you!

Where's the nearest Metro bus, Circulator, streetcar, or Metro rail stop? When's my bus or train coming? Can I make it from here to there on public transit? Is that bus or train going my way? Find out in real time with BusTrackDC. Plan your trip with transit directions, save your favorite stops for easy access, or search for route maps!

I take the bus and train to work and I made BusTrackDC after my favorite app stopped working. I hope you find it as useful as I do!
