Burlington Transit has launched an improved, mobile-friendly website, www.burlingtontransit.ca, which features real-time data for improved customer service.

"This is a significant customer service milestone. In 2011, only 9.9 percent of our web traffic at BurlingtonTransit.ca was through a mobile device or tablet," said Mike Spicer, director of Burlington Transit. "In the past year, our statistics show that over 53 per cent of our web visitors are using a mobile device, and we expect that number to grow even higher in the years to come."

They key features of the new, mobile friendly website include:

  • Trip Planner: Plan your trip online by entering an address, intersection, stop ID or searching by popular locations.
  • Schedule Finder: View a route or stop-specific schedule online or print one to take with you.
  • Next Bus: Get real-time departure information for any bus stop location online or by calling 905-639-0550 with the stop ID number. Users can also see a live map showing the exact location of their bus.
  • Stop Finder: Find the best stop location to suit your needs. View a list of amenities available at each stop so you can plan your trip with comfort.

 

The next steps of the Smart Transit System project include launching a Burlington Transit Twitter account, an online subscription service and online Handi-Van trip booking.
