Users of BC Transit in Victoria have an easier and more accurate way to find out when their next bus is coming.

BC Transit has launched its Next Bus Text Information. The goal is to use your smartphone for quicker and more convenient transit planning.

This new system allows transit users to text their Stop ID (located at each bus stop in the top right corner) and route number to ‘11111’ to receive info on the next four buses that are scheduled to arrive at that stop.

image003The new system compliments the website feature ‘next bus at this stop’ where you can find and enter your Stop ID online to receive the same information.

Go to and click on the location you’d like to leave from using the Stop ID provided.

This service is currently only available for the Victoria Regional Transit System.
