When will the next bus arrive? If you have a mobile phone plan that can send and receive text messages, you can find out bus arrival times within minutes. It's OCTA's award-winning Text4Next messaging service that lets you use your mobile phone to get the next three scheduled arrival times via text for your specific stop.
Since these times are based on the current trip schedules, the bus can arrive 1-2 minutes before or after the time provided. Make sure you are at your bus stop 10 minutes prior to the time you want to catch the bus.
TYPE: bus, your stop number and your route number. Example: bus 3563 71
GET: the next 3 scheduled bus arrival times for that stop, based on the time the text message was sent.
RESULT::959a route 0711034a route 0711109a route 071
You can also check arrival times for future trips - let's say your ride home in the afternoon. All you have to do is add the time and/or date to your information.
Follow these simple rules to ensure you get your desired result. If you do not receive a return message in 2 minutes or receive an error message, check your input data.
