BusFinder BETA

Community Transit's web app, BusFinder, was introduced in the spring of 2014. Its claim to fame was its use of real-time information to show the location of our buses and their departure times.

Since then, technology on our buses has improved and the data provided is more accurate. Our customers need better web experiences, visually and functionally, to get from where they are to where they want to be.

With all this in mind, we've rebuilt BusFinder from the ground up and now you can give it a test drive-- introducing, BusFinder BETA!
