Clock Display

Times can be displayed using either the 12 hour or 24 hour clock.

For example:

  • 12 hour: 9:35 pm
  • 24 hour: 21:35

You may select your preference.

Easy Access

easy access icon Winnipeg Transit’s low-floor buses enable easy access for individuals with limited mobility, those traveling in a wheelchair or scooter, and those traveling with a child stroller.

If you want “Easy Access” icons displayed in timetables or Navigo results to indicate transit service that is served by low-floor buses, then select the Show option for Easy Access. If you do not want the “Easy Access” icons to be displayed, then select Hide.

You can also specify with the click of a button whether you would like to list only service that is operated by “easy access” buses, or all service regardless of accessibility.

Timetables

Notes

Notes are often included in timetables to indicate the direction or destination of the bus on a route.

Some examples of notes are:

  • “To Downtown” or “D”,
  • “Via Regent” or “R”, and
  • “To Airport Via Flight Rd.” or “F”.

You can select “Full Notes” or “Note Codes” to display notes in timetables. If there are many columns in the timetables you use, you may want to use “Note Codes” to minimize column widths.

Map

You have the option of showing the map on the left side of the page, the right side of the page, or of hiding the map for certain functions.

Service Advisory

You have the option of displaying service advisories on the main page only or all pages.

Navigo

You can specify default options that are used by the Navigo trip planner to plan your trips. This eliminates the need for you to specify the options each time you use Navigo. If you wish, though, you can override these options at the time you make a specific Navigo trip planning request.

Maximum Transfer Wait Time

transfer icon The number of minutes that a person is prepared to wait in order to transfer buses to complete a trip is the “maximum transfer wait time”. This value is used by Navigo when planning trips.

You may adjust this setting to meet your individual needs.

Locations

You have the option of automatically saving all new origin and destinations that you enter into your My Locations. If you would like to do this, select the appropriate option.

Walking

address iconYour walking speed and maximum walking time are used when you search for the stops or routes that are nearest to a location that you specify. They are also used by Navigo when planning trips you request.

Walking Speed

An average pedestrian walking speed is approximately 4 km per hour. You may adjust this setting to meet your individual needs.

Maximum Walking Time

The maximum number of minutes that you are prepared to walk to or from a bus stop is the “maximum walking time”. You may adjust this value to meet your individual needs.

Busgadget Settings

BUSgadget allows you to set advanced options to customize the information provided to meet your needs.

Add a new Monitor

You can define any number of monitors to run simultaneously. A monitor is a single instance of BUSgadget. Each monitor has its own stops and routes associated with it, and each one has its own icon in the system tray. Click Add a New Monitor in the tab bar to add a monitor. Give the monitor a name to differentiate it from your other monitors. This name will show up in the monitor’s full display.

Add a stop to your monitor

Each monitor can display times from multiple stops. To add a stop to the monitor, click Add Stop and search for the stop.

If you want to remove a stop, select it in the list and click Remove Stop.

Selecting a route or routes from a stop

Once you have selected your stops, the routes that pass through the stop will appear in the routes list. Click the check box for each route that you would like to appear on your monitor. Unchecked routes will be ignored and will not appear on your display.

Display Options

There are three ways to display time. Times can be absolute (12:34pm), times can be relative (12 min), or times can be mixed. In mixed mode, you select a threshold time, where time will change from absolute to relative time on the display. Times can also be displayed using a 12 hour or 24 hour clock.

Result Grouping

When you have multiple stops and routes on your monitor, you can group them in five different styles.

1) None means that times are mixed together and displayed in a single list.
2) By Route means that all times are sorted into groups by route.
3) By Stop means that all times are sorted into groups by what bus stop the bus stops at. Note that if the same bus stops at multiple bus stops in your list, only the earliest one will be shown.
4) By Route Then By Stop groups all times by route, and then creates subgroups by stop within each route group.
5) By Stop Then By Route groups all times by stop, and then creates subgroups by route within each stop group.

Monitor Profiles

The Monitor Profiles feature can be used to group monitors. You can create monitor groups to service specific needs. Monitors created for work could be put in a work profile so that when you are at work you only monitor the stops near your location.
