HRT Bus Finder User Guide

Home

Go to hrtb.us on your smartphone or computer. Allow the app to use your current location and it will show you a list of HRT stops that are close to you. For each stop, the app will show the route number, destination, and minutes until arrival of all buses coming by that stop in the next 30 minutes. The minutes until arrival is normally blue, but will turn red to indicate the bus is arriving in the next few minutes. Once the bus has left, the arrival will remain in the app for a few minutes, but the minutes until arrival will change to "Gone" and the background will become transparent.
