MTA Bus Time®
Bus Customer Information System
MTA Bus Time® is a real-time bus customer information system that enables bus riders to use smartphones, text messaging, or a web browser to learn when the next bus will arrive at their stop. Developed and maintained by Cambridge Systematics, MTA Bus Time was built on the OneBusAway open source platform. MTA Bus Time also makes real-time bus data available for other internal dispatch and operations applications, as well as to third-party application developers.
MTA Bus Time will expand to cover all of New York City by Spring of 2014, covering over 6,000 buses and serving 2.5 million riders. To see MTA Bus Time live, click here.
