Buses

BusSmart logoThe four routes of the Bus Smart service provides city-wide coverage (details below). Links to school bus routes are also available on this page. The four main routes begin and end at Bus Smart Central outside Reading Cinemas in Dee Street. All Bus Smart buses have free Wi-Fi, an on-board information system and bike racks.

Track YOUR bus!

Just where is YOUR bus? How long will it take to get to YOUR stop? Now you can 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. The new TrackaBus service uses Global Positioning System (GPS) hardware and wireless communications technology to track and report to you the real-time location of buses.  Here are the links:
