NEW Transit Tracker

RTA has launched a new and improved Transit Tracker text system. The updated tracker improves the riding experience by providing real time information to riders who text the system.

Using the NEW Transit Tracker

Using the Transit Tracker is easy! Just follow a few simple steps and you're on your way!
  • Open a new text message in your phone
  • Text NORTA# followed by the Stop ID to 41411
  • Wait for a response from the system. It will instantly respond with real time arrival information on the next bus or streetcar.

Other Real Time Tracking Options

The RTA has a variety of options for riders to find the location of their bus or streetcar. Along with the new Transit Tracker text system, riders can use the NEW GoMobile to see where buses and streetcars are in real time on any route. Additionally, riders can call the Customer Care Rideline at 504-248-3900, and speak with one of our friendly representatives to find out when a bus or streetcar is expected to arrive at any stop.
