HART is the First U.S. Transit Agency to Launch the Trip Planner Feature of OneBusAway!

With the July 25th release of a new dynamic trip planning feature, OneBusAway Tampa is now a one-stop shop for HART real-time travel information!

Customers will now be able to plan their trip and see how close their bus is in real-time, all via a single application!

Plan your HART trip in real-time!
HART is the first U. S. transit agency to launch the trip planner feature of OneBusAway and third in the nation to launch OneBusAway.  The service has shattered expectations with 208 million hits in a 12 month period.

To use the new feature, riders must do the following:
  1. Click the menu bar in the upper left-hand corner
  2. Select the option to "Plan A Trip"
  3. Type in the departing location (From:), the arriving location (To:), also the time and date. Then, your trip will be planned.
The OneBusAway Trip Planner will display 3 bus route options, with each option giving the next departure time closest to the intended time you wish to travel, along with the travel time.

What makes the Trip Planner... "dynamic"?

The trip planner will notify you via the app if the end time of your selected trip has changed by at least 2 minutes, or if your selected trip plan is no longer recommended.

Dynamic Trip Planner alerts you if your trip is no longer recommended

OneBusAway Tampa helps riders save time, effort, and stress and provides reassurance regarding the arrival time of their bus. The real-time service has shattered expectations with 208 million hits in a 12 month period.

Stay tuned, as HART continues to bring you more, with less!
