By the spring of 2014, MTA's service that allows riders to see when a bus will arrive at a certain stop in real time, will be in all five boroughs.

BY ANTHONY O’REILLY

The MTA recently announced plans to expand the company’s real-time bus tracking service to the boroughs of Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan.

“Bus Time has proven extremely popular among bus riders on Staten Island and the Bronx – and I can tell you that because customers have come to me on buses in the Bronx and said we did a really great job on Bus Time,” said Fernando Ferrer, MTA acting chairman. “They find it useful and easy to access, and I think that’s a tremendous endorsement of what we have been doing. Bus Time is so helpful to our customers that we have scheduled an extremely aggressive timetable to introduce it to three other boroughs.”

Through text messaging, web alerts or apps, Bus Time allows customers to see how far a bus is from a certain stop. The service was launched in Staten Island on January 11, 2012 and in the Bronx in November that same year.

The MTA said the expansion to the other three boroughs will be completed by April of 2014.
