From the NY Observer:
Staten Island riders and those in the Bronx have had Bus Time, as the MTA calls its real-time bus tracking tools (and that’s trademarked, so back off, other cities!), since 2012, as have a small handful of routes in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.
But now, the MTA is announcing, we have dates for the rest of the network. “Bus Time is so helpful to our customers that we have scheduled an extremely aggressive timetable to introduce it to three other boroughs,” wrote Fernando Ferrer, the MTA’s acting (and reluctant) chairman in a press release issued today. Manhattan buses will be getting the technology by the end of the year, according to the release, followed by Brooklyn, and then finally Queens, where it will be completed by April 2014.
