    Transit Tracker - MTA allows riders to take advantage of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's vehicle monitoring service, MTA Bus Time.

    Transit Tracker - MTA also includes the ability to download route schedules.

    Transit Tracker - MTA allows you to define alerts for MTA routes and stops; get a notification when a vehicle on a specific route is approaching or arriving at a particular stop.

    Please send me an email if you find a problem or if you have any comments or suggestions.


    Put in one or more route numbers, separated by spaces or commas, and see all vehicles on those routes, put in a stop number to see all buses serving that stop, or put in an individual vehicle number (printed on the side of MTA buses).


    - You can request a route schedule for any MTA route by entering its number. Schedules can be viewed as origin/destination tables or on a map. On the map, see when the next bus/train is scheduled to arrive by tapping on a stop. See all times for that stop by tapping on the info window that appears.


    - Select your current location or an address you enter or select on a map as a search location for MTA stops that are nearby. You can specify a maximum number of stops to return as well as an optional route filter.


    - You can define alerts for when a MTA vehicle is approaching or arriving at a particular stop. These alerts are based on distance from the stop, using the shape of the route defined by MTA.

    - Because these alerts depend on the vehicle following the shape defineUd by MTA, if the vehicle is on detour, or if the vehicle isn't following the defined route for some other reason, your alert may not trigger as expected.


    - Choose an origin, a destination, and the time you would like to either depart or arrive, and the Google Maps app will display the different options available using MTA's buses and trains.

    Other features:

    - Choose a light or dark theme.
    - Show satellite imagery and/or color-coded traffic data on the map.
    - Optionally keep the map screen from dimming and shutting off.
    - Adjust the update interval of MTA vehicle locations.
    - Choose a custom ringtone for MTA alerts.

    This is not an official MTA app; I am not affiliated with MTA in any way.

    The status is simple normal progress means the bus is moving and no progress indicates last stop breakdown or wheelchair and with Google maps you can see live traffic conditions with this app I feel like the MTA Road Supervisors who watch the buses arriving but they can't track a bus unless they have this app I refer alot of Android users to this program
