To get this thread going I'd like to say that i'm happy to see that the 92 University loop is getting far more use this term. I ride an 8 that runs gets to UW just in time for the 8:30AM class and so is often delayed because so many people are trying to pack in (and get turned away!). There is now a 92 that usually is just before us now and takes the pressure off. Great Idea! I hope the uptake keeps increasing!

I don't ride it but as commuter on Columbia, I see the 92 from time to time, stuck on Columbia between King & Weber due to its short 1-lane, ha
Anyway, Columbia during rush hours is a mess now, with all the constructions and lane reduction

What's the frequency of that route? By the looks of it, it should be fairly often as it's a short loop.

It's currently every 15 minutes in each direction, but is only run during weekday peaks.

I saw on Twitter that the UWaterloo Student Portal has real-time bus arrival data online (screenshot showed the 200 and 7C). Hopefully this means that information will be available to the general public soon as well.

GRT has mentioned a forthcoming app with this data, but they've been promising real-time data "coming soon" for at least three years so I'm not holding my breath.

link?

The UW Student Portal is a pretty cool app.  I got a chance to see it briefly in action (but not the transportation part).  I'm told that is really useful to know exactly where the buses are.  The project is currently in limited release on campus.

Let's try again

GRT is working on a Smart Card system which will be installed on all buses and ION. All fares, transfers, etc. will be electronic. More information can be found here:
