Real time BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) information in your terminal!

Project Description

Real time BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) information in your terminal!


  • Real time estimates and service advisories
  • Curses-based TUI with auto-refreshing and resizing
  • View multiple stations at the same time
  • Colors indicating transit lines, estimate times, and train lengths
  • Ability to configure a default set of stations
  • No dependencies; built with only standard libraries


  • Python 2.6+ or Python 3.0+ with the curses module installed (i.e. not Windows)
  • Terminal with 256 color support to correctly display the Richmond-Fremont line as orange (magenta otherwise)
    • Note: this usually involves setting the TERM environment variable to xterm-256color


pip install pybart


usage: bart [-h] [-l] [-v] [STN [STN ...]]

Display real time BART estimates.

positional arguments:
  STN            abbreviation of station to look up (default: BART_STATIONS
                 environment variable)

optional arguments:
  -h, --help     show this help message and exit
  -l, --list     print list of station abbreviations and exit
  -v, --version  show program's version number and exit

  bart mcar       get estimates for the MacArthur station
  bart embr cols  get estimates for the Embarcadero and Coliseum stations


The following (optional) environment variables can be used to configure pybart:

  • BART_STATIONS - a comma-separated string (e.g. mcar,embr,cols) specifying the default stations to use when running bart with no arguments.
  • BART_API_KEY - the BART API key to use when fetching information. A public one is used by default, but you can get your own here.
