Get ready for real-time #bus
arrival info in #Austin
, Texas. Dadnab already gives real-time info for MetroRapid and MetroRail, but starting Wednesday, Dadnab will show you when buses across +Capital Metro
's entire fleet are likely to arrive based on their real-time locations.
To use it, you don't need to do anything differently. Just send your queries as you normally do, and you'll see real-time info in parentheses showing you how minutes ahead or behind the bus is running.
