BROOKLYN - The MTA's bus-tracking program is now letting Brooklyn riders track MTA bus arrival times.

The MTA has rolled out its bus-tracking system, called Bus Time, to all 164 bus routes in Brooklyn and Queens.

Riders can visit the Bus Time website on a smartphone or computer to find live bus locations. Another option is texting an intersection or street address to 511123. QR codes, optical labels that store information, will also be located at select stops and can be scanned via smartphone cameras. 

The system uses GPS tracking devices on buses to provide the real-time data.

Bus riders who spoke with News 12 say they think the new system will be convenient and will allow for reduced stress in their commute.

The program is available at nearly 15,000 stops across the five boroughs.
