Bus Tracker rollout: Fini

It took about a year, but give the CTA credit — they finished putting almost 150 bus routes on Bus Tracker, starting next Monday, May 18.


Bus Tracker began in 2006 with the No. 20 Madison as a pilot project. It took two years for the CTA to learn from that project, get the right equipment in place, and figure out how to roll things out most efficiently by bus garage.


I think you’ll agree, it’s been worth the wait.
