MBTA routes now on NextBus

Tracking information for select MBTA routes is now accessible via NextBus, the web site that shows the current position and predicted arrival times of buses, at http://nextbus.com.

MBTA routes near MIT covered by NextBus include the CT1, CT2, CT3, and the No. 1.

NextBus will also show tracking for the EZRide shuttle starting some time in September.

According to Lawrence R. Brutti of MIT Parking and Transportation, GPS trackers with NextBus software will be installed in the EZRide shuttles before the end of August.

However, because it will take a little while for the trackers to “learn the route,” tracking will not be fully operational until the end of September. The NextBus system already tracks the existing MIT shuttles.
