The TrackABus service uses Global Positioning System (GPS) hardware and wireless communications technology to track the real-time location of buses. This lets you use your computer, cell phone, smartphone or other tech device to get information about when the next bus will arrive at your stop, even if you are still at home, the office, shopping, or dining.
This is a TEST SITE without complete coverage of the urban bus fleets so cannot be relied on for transport information.
Please note that the TrackABus Dunedin real time service and information is a private system and the Otago Regional Council is not responsible for the accuracy of the information displayed.
The schedule information in General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) format has been modifed for use in the TrackABus system and is used within the Terms and Conditions detailed here -
The TrackABus NZ service is based on the great work of the OneBusAway New York and OneBusAway teams. We would like to thank all the hard work of the people who have worked on the various OneBusAway projects, without which our real time information service would not be possible.
Special thanks are needed for the OneBusAway New York City team at MTA BusTime. The BusTime team developed the particular real time solution that is the bedrock of the TrackABus service. We would also like to thank the developers at the MTA, Cambridge Systematics, Open Plans Transportation and the wider OneBusAway community who have helped us launch this service with their time and knowledge - we hope they will be pleased to see their work helping get real time information to towns and cities across New Zealand.
