Bus schedules in real time

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority will implement a new electronic bus information system that will allow riders to track where buses are in real time via the Internet or text message.
The authority has already begun to try out the system on the B63 bus line in Brooklyn and will install it on Staten Island buses by the end of this year, according to a statement from the MTA.
Riders with electronic devices that have access to the Internet will be able to find out where buses are and when they can expect them at particular stops on the MTA Bus Time web site at www.mta.info/bustime
Smartphone users can also access a mobile web site where they can see the real-time bus locations or send the MTA a text message with a code displayed at bus stops. Riders will receive a message with the next several bus locations. – Vishal Persaud
