VVS station monitor

VVS station monitor

What's VVS?

VVS (VVS Verkehrs- und Tarifverbund Stuttgart) is the public transport group in stuttgart.

What does the station monitor do?

The station monitor will show next departures from one or more stations and will display also the delay. The station monitor will refresh periodically and can be used for infomation monitors.

Docker image: lugbb/vvs-station-monitor (based on nginx)



  • Auto update
  • Blacklist/Whitelist for line and direction (regular expressions)
  • Based on bootstrap (easier customization, responsive layout)
  • Customizable font size (set it via css on the html element, see examples)
  • Show time in relative (xxx min) or absolute (14:21) or both (switching based on time setting)
  • Show relative and absolute times on mouseover
  • Local caching (using localStorage, some rotation browser-plugin also reloads the page so this will prevent unnecessary ajax requests)
  • Avoid duplicate ajax requests
  • Clock (optional)
  • Easy station configuration (by using data- attributes)
  • Template based (mustache)
  • Written in TypeScript
  • OpenSource license (MIT)

For anyone wo don't want to use bootstrap: It isn't required. Just remove the bootstrap CSS and add or write your own CSS. Bootstrap was a solution to get a nice and responsive result with less work.


Most configuration can be set in the HTML eg. custom filtering and other stuff. The configuration will be automatically taken from data-xxx attributes and will overwrite the configuration.

You can use Bootstrap classes and add more station lists, filter directions and lines (eg. no busses).

Get station id

You can get the station id from or from the formular at

VVS station id


All jQuery plugin configuration options for vvsStation can be easily configured as HTML attributes for each instance:

<div class="vvs-station" data-station="5006118" data-blacklist-line="^[0-9]+$" data-min-departure="15" data-max-departure="200"></div>

See jquery.vvsstation.settings.ts and class.vvs.settings.ts for all available settings and their defaults.
