With CirculatorBuddy, you can see in real-time where buses are located along the city’s four Charm City Circulator bus routes. It’s yet another mapping project by Charm City Networks‘ Chris Whong.

With CirculatorBuddy, you can see in real-time where buses are located along the city’s four Charm City Circulator bus routes.

It’s yet another mapping project by Charm City NetworksChris Whong. The map pulls data from the Circulator’s XML feed and “animates every few seconds,” said Whong in a post on the Baltimore Tech Facebook group. As of now, it’s not working in Internet Explorer (Google Chrome is calling you).

View the CirculatorBuddy map.

CirculatorBuddy’s map also works on mobile phones, albeit more slowly.

For those in need of a mobile app letting them know when and where Circulator buses are stopping, try the BusIt app. The app displays an interactive map of the Circulator bus map and works without an Internet connection.
