NEXTBus FAQs

What is the NEXTBus system?

NextBus information is not a static bus or shuttle schedule listing — it is actual arrival information, updated at regular intervals.

Because traffic variations, breakdowns, and day-to-day problems faced by any transit provider can interrupt service, NextBus was designed to keep you on schedule.

NextBus uses GPS technology and a proprietary algorithm that incorporates historical travel data to track vehicles and predict vehicle arrival time. By taking into account the actual position of the buses, their intended stops, and typical traffic patterns, NextBus can estimate vehicle arrivals with a high degree of accuracy. This estimate is refreshed constantly to provide riders with up-to-the-minute information.

How do I access the NEXTBus system?

Shuttle users may access the system four ways:

  1. MOBILE - download the NEXTBus app to your mobile phone - visit www.salisbury.edu/nextbus on your phone and follow the download link.
  2. VOICE - 443-389-0328 and follow the prompts
  3. TEXT - Text "SUshuttle" and your stop number to 41-411
  4. WEB - www.salisbury.edu/nextbus
