MassDOT and the MBTA announced that riders on five of the T's busiest bus lines can now track the locations of their buses in real-time on the MBTA website.
The new MBTA.com service, "T-Tracker," includes real-time location and arrival prediction information for bus route 39, which serves Jamaica Plain, the Longwood Medical Area and Back Bay in Boston; and bus routes 111, 114, 116 and 117, which serve Haymarket Station, East Boston, Chelsea and Revere.
The real-time information and T-Tracker website is a pilot project to determine the best way to expand the service to more bus routes.
In November, the MBTA released a Real-Time XML Trial Feed for the same five lines that resulted in the creation of at least 8 customer-friendly mobile phone or web-based applications at no cost to the MBTA.
