WRTA Bustracker – Track by QR Code
What is a QR Code? A “Quick Response” (QR) Code is a 2-dimensional bar code image (just like the one on products at the grocery store) that will allow you to quickly access a site on the internet via a mobile device. The WRTA has outfitted its Bus Tracker signage to provide real-time arrival times for your stop just by simply scanning the code.
Quick Response Scan Instructions
Getting your next bus time by using a QR Code Scanner is as easy as 1-2-3. Note that you must have a smart phone with a data plan to use this service (Standard Data Rates Apply).
Step 1: Download Scanner App
If you don’t already have one, you must first download a QR Scanning Application to your mobile device. The WRTA recommends using Scanlife, which is available for iOs , Blackberry, Android or Windows operating systems. You are welcome however, to download any QR Scan application of your choice – reviews of other QR scanning applications for each phone can be found here.
Step 2: Open App & Scan
Now that you’ve downloaded and installed a QR Scan app for your mobile device, open the scanning application and stand about 3-5 feet away from the Sign, fit the QR Box into your scanner. (With scanlife, you will hear a beep when you’ve lined up the image in the crosshairs correctly)
Step 3: Get Your Bus Time!
In this example, at Stop ID 1145, The Route 11 Bus to City Hall will arrive in 12, 14, 16, and 18 minutes.
