It was announced on Thursday that customers will be able to see how many passengers are on a vehicle in real-time by using Rocketman and Transit mobile apps.

The new feature aims to help commuters better plan their trips by using a three-tier notification system — not busy, busy, and very busy. If a bus is considered "very busy" that means more than 40 people are currently riding on that vehicle. 

"This new feature will go a long way to helping customers feel safe on our bus network and helping riders feel comfortable when riding the TTC," Jaye Robinson, TTC chair, said.

The announcement of the new feature followed a recent incident where online photos showed crowded buses packed with people during Ontario's stay-at-home order.
