Find what you need faster on the new JTRAN website

As you’ve probably noticed, is your new JTRAN website. It’s designed to provide you with clearer, simpler, more accessible information. Information that’s relevant to you—our riders. What does this mean? Let’s take a look.

Designed for smartphones, first and foremost

Let’s face it: most of us use our phone to visit websites. So we designed for smartphones first. Words don’t get cut off. Widths aren’t an afterthought. Whatever you need to do works just as well from your phone as it does from a laptop—if not even better.

Interactive maps and schedules

We always recommend using the Transit app to look up bus times. But maybe you want to see the full JTRAN network, or a single route schedule. On the JTRAN website, you can do this in no time.

The full JTRAN network map is front and center on the homepage, and it’s interactive—meaning you can move around, zoom, or click to your heart’s content. Not sure if your route goes on Medgar Evers or Capitol? Just pinch to zoom in and take a closer look.

You can also look up individual routes from the homepage. From the route page, you can see times for every stop, including the next scheduled arrival time. Want to see later times for a stop? Just click on that stop and each time will appear for the day.

Key information is easy to find

The new JTRAN website centers you, our riders. This means you get more information you need, in fewer taps. Most elements are right on the homepage: routes, fares, news, and how to ride.

Still can’t find what you’re looking for? Check the main menu, or just keep scrolling. There’s always a direct link from the footer.

How to ride JTRAN, step by step

We get it, taking the bus for the first time can be stressful. But knowing what to expect can really take the edge off. This is why we created a mini step-by-step “how to ride” guide—on the homepage—that breaks it all down.
