Information for motorways and trunk roads

New on iOS & Android - Belfast Metro Bus Tracker App

Department for Infrastructure and Translink have launched an App for real time bus information at all Metro bus stops called Belfast Bus Tracker.

The App gives immediate access to real time information about bus services across the Metro network in the Greater Belfast area.

Using the built-in GPS features of your smart phone to work out where you are, the App will provide real time, audio and visual public transport information whilst at the bus stop, at home, at work or on the move.

The App is available now to download for free from iOS and Android App Stores

The App features allow you to:

  • Save your favourite stops;
  • Follow your bus on its route to your stop;
  • Find bus stops by address or near your current location; and
  • Check current and future bus schedules.
