MTA Announces 
Bus Time Comes to Brooklyn and Queens
MTA Bus Time finds the location of the next several buses that will arrive at your stop and shows you how many stops away the next bus is.  The Bus Time website displays a map with  moving images representing the real-time loction of buses along the routes.  By checking MTA Bus Time, you can save time by going to the stop when the bus is soon to arrive. 
Bus stop codes can be found online at http://www.mta/info/bustime or at bus stops on the posted Guide-A-Ride schedules. The installation of MTA Bus Time Guide-a-Ride canisters is currently in progress and will continue until May due to the vast number of stops in Brooklyn and Queens.  Customers with smartphones can scan a Quick Response (QR) code that will be on all the Guide-A-Ride canisters.  Or customers with cellphones can text a bus stop code or intersection to 511123 and they will receive a text back to their phone stating how many stops away their bus is.

Important Notice 

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority Capital Construction (MTACC) and Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) are currently constructing a project to bring new LIRR passenger service directly into Grand Central Terminal (GCT), augmenting the service already provided to Penn Station. This project, which is known as the East Side Access (ESA) Project, will route the LIRR through new track connections in Queens to new tunnels under Sunnyside Yard and into the existing 63rd Street Tunnel under the East River, which has space for two tracks reserved for ESA. In Manhattan, the tunnel route will extend from the existing 63rd Street Tunnel terminus at 2nd Avenue and East 63rd Street, curve south under Park Avenue at 61st Street, pass below the 60th Street tunnels of the N and R subway, stay deep below the Metro-North tunnels as they approach GCT, enter a new terminal under GCT, and extend along Park Avenue to approximately 37th Street.  Additional information on the project is available at www.mta.info/capconstr/esas/index.html.
