Text For Your Next Bus
Finding the next bus doesn’t require data. Connect to our text for next bus and get live updates on when your bus will arrive.
Just follow these steps:
- Look for your stop id number in the bottom right corner of the bus stop sign.
- Text LBT and the stop id to 27299. So, if you are at stop 1454 you would text LBT1454 to 27299
- The next arrival times of all buses for that stop will be texted back.
You can also add your route number if your bus stop serves different LBT routes. Just add the route number after LBT and the stop ID. (LBT1454 121)
