TransSee is a web application that provides
real-time bus tracking and next vehicle predictions to a
growing list of transit agencies, including most of North
America's largest systems, New York MTA, LA Metro,
Chicago CTA and TransSee's home system the Toronto TTC.
TransSee is a web application that runs on any browser, so
it supports all smartphones, past, present (including
BlackBerry and Windows Phone) and future,
as well as any other device with a web browser from Macs and
PCs to smart TVs. It even works on SwatchWatch browsers.
Its unique set of features include:
Lean efficient HTML that is quick to load and requires little bandwidth.

Choose stops from a map or by an ordered stop list.
See predictions for any set of stops you choose.
Dynamic route list based on currently operating routes.
Can send an email or web notification when a vehicle will be arriving in the selected time. For web notification, the prediction is automatically updated. Must be enabled first.
Can generate its own predictions based on the actual historic travel times, rather than just based on the adjusted scheduled time.
Can generate a prediction range, so you know when you should be there to not miss the bus as well as the latest time you will likely arrive at your destination.

Provides schedules by stop, route and trip.
Many settings to customize what information is displayed.
