Real-time bus locator

The UIC Shuttle Tracker was developed as a service to the UIC community. It provides the real-time location of buses operated by the UIC Intercampus Bus Service, and for nearby CTA buses. Each moving bus is continuously classified as belonging to one of the four campus routes, or to no route at all. Finally, once a bus has been classified as belonging to a route, the program computes arrival time predictions based on historical travel times from past trips. The route classification and arrival time predictions algorithms were developed by CTS members. More statistical analysis is being gathered on the CTS bus system. Tracker in action at:
