BCTracker Survey

November 28, 2021

We're running a quick survey over the next few weeks to get a better sense of who is using BCTracker, and for what purpose. This information will help us understand what new features should have the highest priority, as well as what improvements can be made to existing features. It's also a great opportunity for you to give us general feedback about things you like and things you think could be better.

If you have a couple spare minutes, we would very much appreciate hearing from you. Thanks for supporting BCTracker!

Fall Update

September 21, 2021

Over the last couple months you may have noticed some exciting new features appearing around the website. We're trying to keep updates more frequent, rather than releasing massive changes once or twice per year.

Since the big multi-system update earlier this summer, we've introduced:

  • Schedule Adherence: How many minutes ahead or behind schedule a bus is (approximately)
  • Nearby Stops: Easy transfers that are within 100m of the stop you're looking at
  • Dark Theme: Can be set automatically based on your device's current preferences, or set manually
  • Tablet Layouts: Specially designed for screens bigger than a phone but smaller than a computer
  • Lots more minor improvements and fixes behind the scenes

We appreciate your feedback, and we're looking forward to turning more of your suggestions into new features and improvements. Stay tuned for more this fall!

More Transit Systems

July 12, 2021

You asked for it, and we listened! That's right, BCTracker now supports multiple transit systems across British Columbia.

We're starting with 10 cities and regions from around the province, and we plan to add more in the future. These initial systems include all seven currently enabled with realtime information, as well as three that only provide schedule data. You can easily swap between these systems at any time using the dropdown at the top right corner of your screen.

In addition to all the new transit systems, we've also made a bunch of improvements to the general website design. System-wide realtime maps, route maps and information panels, improved desktop layouts, and many more useful features are now available!

There's always more to do, and your feedback helps us figure out what comes next. You can send an email to james@bctracker.ca to let us know what you like and what can be made better.

Have a great summer!

New Deckers Out!

April 1, 2021

BCTracker has been updated to support the latest deckers, which have just entered service.

Stay safe everyone!

New Website Look

August 21, 2020

BCTracker has a new look! We've been working hard to get this updated design ready, and there's a lot of new things for you to enjoy - including full mobile support, improved realtime navigation, maps, and much more.

We've also moved the website to a new address at bctracker.ca. The old URL will continue to be usable for a while, but if you've bookmarked any pages you'll want to make sure they're updated.

Over the next few weeks we'll be making more changes to the systems that make the website work behind the scenes. You (hopefully) won't notice any differences, but it will allow us to add lots more new and exciting stuff in the future. We're always looking for ways to improve the website even more, and your feedback is always welcome. Send us an email anytime at james@bctracker.ca
