Where to Get Service Information:

Conditions can change quickly. Before you leave, get the latest updates on weather related delays and detours:


Using NextBus:

CHT’s NextBus system estimates the next arrivals for buses in real time, based on each vehicle's location and average speed. But when many vehicles are off-route or significantly delayed, it cannot make accurate arrival predictions. NextBus can, however, tell you if your line is delayed, or the location of the next vehicle.


Riding Tips:

  • If there's no traffic going by your bus stop, walk to a stop on a busy street.
  • If your bus stop is in the middle of a hill, walk to the bottom or top where the operator can safely stop.
  • Stand back from the curb until the bus comes to a complete stop. Buses can slide sideways in slippery conditions.
  • Keep in mind, your bus may not pull all the way over to the curb to avoid getting stuck.
