Bus Time, which was brought to all citywide routes on March 9, lets waiting riders track where their next bus is using GPS and cellular data.
Buses send their location and route information every 30 seconds to a central server, which sends the info to riders through the website bustime.mta.info.
Users can also get information by texting a bus stop code to 511123.
