Real-Time Bus Status

  • Bus Time provides:
    • Real-time information for Loudoun County Transit's buses.
    • Estimated arrival time of each run to the specified stop, either in a tabular format or a map-based format.
  • Route numbers noted in Bus Time are the same route numbers listed on the public schedule and displayed on the dashboard of the bus, e.g., 281, 333, 481, 881. 
  • The system describes the morning Commuter Bus routes as "inbound" and the afternoon/evening Commuter Bus routes as "outbound".

Access Your Account

  1. Using the Tabular Format
  2. Using the Map Format
  1. From the Bus Time web page, select the "Estimated Arrival Times" box.
  2. Select the route Number, the direction and the stop. These choices are located at the top of the web page. All of the buses that are running the selected route will show up in order of estimated arrival/departure times at the selected stop.
  3. If you want to view all of the routes going through a particular stop as opposed to just your selected route, then check the box that says "Show All Vehicles For This Stop." The check box is located just below "Select Route."  The direction will be pre-selected for you based on the route number. Then select the stop at which you plan to catch the bus, for example "14th St & F St.". Then select the "Show All Vehicles For This Stop" checkbox. The user will then see all of the buses approaching that stop on their screen. Please note that "checking" the checkbox shows all buses going through the stop, including those that aren't going to your park and ride lot.

User Notes

  • The real-time information system will only show predicted times for buses that are scheduled to arrive at the selected stop within 30 minutes. Any bus that is due to arrive at the stop between 30 and 45 minutes will show the scheduled time, not the predicted arrival time. Buses scheduled to arrive after 45 minutes are not shown on the real-time information screen.
  • If you are looking at a particular bus stop and the predicted arrival time of the bus doesn't seem to be changing, it is likely that the bus is stopped for an incident (flat tire, accident, presidential motorcade, etc).
