How do I know if I am seeing real-time or static schedule information?
Different applications have different ways to indicate if the information present is static or real-time.
Real-time departure information shows up in Google as coloured text. If the bus is on time, the departure time is displayed in green. If the bus is running late, the scheduled time is crossed out in the timeline and an updated departure time is displayed in red.
Can I see service notices/bulletins/alerts (e.g. detours, route changes, stop cancellations, etc.) on third-party apps?
Service alerts are now posted to Halifax Transit's GTFS real-time feed. Click here for more information.
What is a "beta release" of the GTFS real-time data feed?
Halifax Transit has launched the data feed to developers as a beta release. During this time, the service will be monitored for any issues and it may be necessary to turn off the service to address any technical issues that may arise. Users of the real-time data may experience downtime, inaccuracies in data quality, etc. until any issues are resolved.
Help! The app on my phone doesn't work. Do you support my transit mobile app? Why doesn't my transit mobile app work?
Unfortunately, Halifax Transit does not have the resources to offer support for third-party applications. Halifax Transit does not provide a mobile app; Halifax Transit provides data to third-party application developers. Any support requests for these applications should be directed to the developer of the application.
How do I know if my trip plan includes accessible routes and/or buses equipped with bike racks?
The GTFS feed does not currently include accessibility information. Please refer to the Routes & Schedules page for up-to-date schedule and route-specific information.
