Live Bus Tracking Now Available!
Now you can track the actual, real-time that LBT buses will arrive at their next bus stops. Using satellite tracking, Long Beach Transit's WebWatch system calculates when a bus will arrive at its stops. Go to LBT's home page and click on "Live Bus Tracking" at the top of the page.

Long Beach Transit is the first transit system in Southern California and third in the nation providing WebWatch real-time information to its patrons. While still at your home, work-site, school and other internet- friendly environs, you can now see exactly when your bus will arrive and plan your schedule accordingly. Wait-time at bus stops can be reduced, and trip planning, including transfers, improved.

Feedback on this new service can be made on the web site, and Long Beach Transit looks forward to your comments. While there are limits to the program, we want to make it as easy and convenient as possible to use.

Personal travel assistance is still also available through LBT's transit advisors by calling (562) 591-2301, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Long Beach Transit Expands Real-Time Bus Arrival Displays
Most Are Now Solar Powered

Long Beach Transit has completed the next phase of its bus stop improvement program with the current installation of ten more TranSmart signs, electronic signs that display real-time arrivals of buses at bus stops.

TranSmart signs were introduced in 2004 at four busy bus stops on Anaheim Street, and more recently at each shelter along the Long Beach Transit Mall on First Street in downtown. Similar to displays at airports, the TranSmart signs continually display the pending arrival times of the next several buses that serve that particular bus stop or station.

The new installations will bring the total number of TranSmart signs to forty-eight. The new signs are located at:

  • Atlantic & Artesia, SW corner
  • Atlantic & 7th, NE corner
  • Long Beach Blvd & Del Amo, SW corner
  • Pine Ave Convention Center
  • Shoreline & Cedar
  • Shoreline & Queensway
  • 5th & Promenade
  • Norwalk & Carson, NE corner
  • Cherry & Willow, SW corner
  • Bellflower & Harvard, SW corner

Long Beach Transit carries nearly 90,000 passengers daily, and has a fleet of 228 buses. All of the buses are outfitted with GPS and are monitored for on-time performance from a communication center at the transit agency’s corporate headquarters located at 1963 E. Anaheim Street. Long Beach Transit is consistently awarded as being one of the top ten transit agencies of its size in the country.
