New York, NY (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
Not all buses come in a New York minute. Fortunately, NYC Bus Checker is a free new app, officially licensed by the MTA, that shows the arrival time of every bus in New York City. Unlike other apps, it’s simple to use and provides arrival times at all 15,000+ bus stops as well as every official route map.
Its easy-to-use interface was developed in conjunction with Apple and makes planning a bus journey and commuting a breeze. It tells you what you want to know, when you want to know. Plus, finding the nearest stop is easy with NYC Bus Checker as it uses GPS mapping to show all the nearest routes.
But that’s not the best bit. NYC Bus Checker also tracks buses in Real Time using the MTA GPS-backed technology installed on buses. It shows exactly when a bus will really arrive – not just when it’s scheduled. And in case commuters have a habit of falling asleep on the bus, they’ve got it covered. The ‘Stop Alert’ will sound with an alarm or vibration just as the bus is approaching the destination.
Initially launched in London in 2012 and rolled out to cover the rest of Britain, Bus Checker has become the UK’s best selling travel app*. “We’ve had such a great response to London Bus Checker, that we wanted to bring the app to New York City,” explains Carl Partridge, Developer and Founder of Bus Checker. “We're thrilled that the MTA's brand new real-time technology is helping us to provide New Yorkers with live and accurate travel information. Bus Checker's social media features will let users share their experiences with other commuters to get them there faster and easier than before.”
NYC Bus Checker is now available in the App Store for iPhone and Android and is hosting a competition to win a free month of bus travel. Find out what the UK has been raving about for years, check out NYC Bus Checker.
