Madison Metro WebWatch

If you are a bus commuter, it is nice to know when you can expect your bus to arrive—particularly as the temperature dips (and with recess changes to campus routes). While you can view route schedules at the City of Madison Metro Transit site, real time arrivals can be tracked using its WebWatch monitor. Despite disclaimers regarding its potential accuracy when route deviations may occur and its “testing” status, I have found it to be quite useful for estimating my wait at any one stop.

This is great! Out of curiosity, where did you hear about it. I don't even seem to see it on the Metro web site.
