The MTA’s Bus Time is now live for buses in Staten Island. Powered by technology from two NYC tech companies, Open Plans and Mobile Commons, New Yorkers can track buses in real-time using their computers, smart phones or via SMS.

The Mayor welcomed the news, saying, “ In an increasingly digital world, it’s more important than ever to provide New Yorkers with the 21st Century mass transit system they need and deserve. Today, the MTA took a positive step towards that goal by launching Bus Time in Staten Islanda real-time tracking service that will provide greater convenience and more flexibility to New Yorkers.”

The MTA is launching BusTime in Staten Island later this month, allowing you to track buses and get an estimated time of arrival from your computer or mobile device (vis SMS or a web app).

Until then, you can check out the pilot program on the M34 and M34A routes in Manhattan or the B63 route in Brooklyn.

Have you seen one of these around NYC?

For the past two weeks, the MTA has been running a fleet of vintage buses on the M42 crosstown route. According to the MTA, “Everything is original except the MetroCard fareboxes.”
