BROOKLYN - Bus riders in Brooklyn will soon be able to better time their daily commutes. 

The MTA is expanding its live bus tracking system to thousands of stops in the borough on March 9, giving customers access to real-time information on when their next ride will arrive. 

Transportation officials say that the high-tech improvements are being made in response to positive feedback about the same timing system already implemented at subway stations citywide, as well as some bus lines in other boroughs. 

Commuters agree that it's a great idea that will save them from spending extra time waiting outside.
