Where is BART

Transit Location Visualization

BART’s realtime API doesn’t provide realtime location of trains, but using estimated arrival times and known travel times between stops I developed a realtime map visualization of all trains in the BART system. Trains are color coded by destination, and data is refreshed every 15 seconds. The map assumes normal operating conditions – any delays in the BART system will cause the estimated positions on the map to be inaccurate.
