Today we look at Toronto Transit Tracker. A handy app that uses real-time information about when the next streetcar will arrive. the next Streetcar will be arriving. There are 3 tabs to the application, Favourites, Streetcar and Map.
Favourites, shows the stops that you have marked as favourite including next vehicle time making it great for a quick lookup.
Streetcar, lets you choose Route, Direction and Stop and provides you with the next available streetcar. You can see up to the next 5 cars.
Map, allows you to see all the stops on a route as well as where each of the streetcars actually are. It’s fascinating to watch as the streetcars bunch up at different times during the day.
I love having this app, but until the TTC starts providing data for buses and this app adds supports for them I wont really be using it every day, but if you use streetcars regularly it’s a must have.
If your interested you can get it from the Android Market Place here

I wish Ottawa had something like this. OC Transpo yanked the public GPS information so it’s no longer available.
This app now supports TTC buses
Yes, it does. I was thrilled to fiknd that after updating it last night.
