MTA rolls out Bus Time for Staten Island

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (NY) expanded Bus Time to cover buses serving the borough of Staten Island. The application enables commuters to track the location of every route in real time from a computer or smart phone, by text message, or by scanning a QR  code at the bus stop. “We’ve taken a new approach by using already existing off-the-shelf components and tailoring open standards and software,” said New York City Transit president Thomas Prendergast in a statement. “The benefit of this in-house, open-design approach allows the MTA more freedom to purchase equipment from several different suppliers and adapt to new technology allowing us to roll out this important communications tool to our customers at a much lower cost.”
