BROOKLYN - City Council members and other transit advocates are calling for the installation of real-time clocks along bus routes.

The digital clocks, which have already been added to many subway stations throughout the five boroughs, would use GPS technology to give straphangers information about exactly when their next bus will roll up.

The MTA says it's already in the process of installing GPS devices on busses and that riders will be able to get arrival times using their smartphones. However, officials argue that display clocks are needed to make it easy for people who don't have smartphones.
