NJ Transit expands MyBus to north Jersey routes

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- NJ Transit has expanded real-time information to 110 bus routes in northern New Jersey.

MyBus Now was launched as a pilot program in the Trenton area in 2012. It was expanded to southern New Jersey and Philadelphia-area buses in April.

"Smart bus" technology is used to provide customers with access to real-time bus arrival estimates. Customers can access the information by computer, smartphone or text message.

NJ Transit is taking delivery of 1,145 new buses that are already equipped with smart bus technology. It has purchased additional units to retrofit the remaining buses in the fleet and hopes to make MyBus Now available system wide later this year.

    7 train to New Jersey?

    The idea is grand: to take the 7 train and connect Queens to Manhattan to New Jersey. But as with all these massive projects, the chorus gets quiet when asked who will to pay for it. While business interests announced plans of an economic impact study, no one has even a ballpark number for a price tag.

    HELMET VIDEO: Cyclist wipes out on taxi door

    With a camera mounted to his helmet, a cyclist headed northbound on 4th Avenue in Manhattan. As he neared East 14th Street, the taxi door swung open and the cyclist slammed into the door and went down. But it's the aftermath where things got weird in an "Only in New York" kind of way as the blame game started. The cab driver was upset because he said his door was damaged.
