Is Your Bus Late Again? You Can Track it.

3/11/2014 - By Marea Edynak

In the very recent past the timetables posted on the bus poles were only a mere suggestion of when your bus might arrive. That is all changed now. You can pinpoint the exact location of the next bus and how many minutes it will take to arrive at your stop. 

More than 15,000 bus stops are in the MTA's real-time tracking system and it now includes all 5 boroughs. It works with GPS hardware that has been installed in 5,500 buses.

Use your favorite transit app or go to the Web atwww.bustime.mta.info. Type a bus route, stopcode or nearby intersection in the search box & press enter. Or keep zooming the map in by double clicking on a location. Or you can text from your cell phone to 511123 and sent the address or intersection.

It won't make your wait any shorter but at least you will have something to do while you're waiting.
