AC Transit is the third-largest bus-only transit system in California, serving over 400 square miles of the East Bay. For over forty years, AC Transit has been dedicated to providing quality mass transit. Every weekday, over 230,000 people ride their fleet of nearly 800 buses.
AC Transit has already been providing real-time transit information to the heavily used corridor selected for their sleek rapid “Rapid Bus” service. NextBus has been tracking both the rapid 72R, and the regular 72 buses, so passengers can make an informed choice. NextBus Rugged Transit Displays are installed at most of the Rapid Bus shelters, or in nearby shop windows.
Now passengers on all major lines will benefit from the NextBus information. NextBus predictions are available on riders’ computers or smart phones, so they can get online and on board with NextBus to take advantage of this free rider tool that can help their everyday commute.
Only the All-Nighter (800 series) and supplementary school service (600 series) do not yet provide NextBus data.
Great Marketing from AC Transit, Too
AC Transit does a marvelous job of marketing it services to riders as you can see from its ‘About NextBus’ page which makes it easy to understand how NextBus benefits AC Transit passengers.
