Don't Want to Wonder? Text "My Bus" for NJ Transit Schedules

People line up to board a New Jersey Transit train at the train station in Trenton, N.J., Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2007. The head of NJ Transit is recommending a 10 percent fare hike, beginning June 1. The increase would apply to both bus and rail fares. On Tuesday, outgoing NJ Transit executive director George D. Warrington said that it would close a budget deficit of about $60 million in the agency's proposed $1.5 billion budget. (AP Photo/Mel Evans)

NJ Transit passengers no longer have to wonder how long before the next bus comes.

The agency's "My Bus'' system enables riders to text to find out when a bus is arriving at more than 19,000 stops.

All that's needed is a five-digit ID for their bus stop. Those are available online at njtransit.com.

Passengers text the five-digit ID to MyBus to receive the route and arrival times.

NJ Transit executive director James Weinstein says the service is part of an ongoing effort to use technology to improve access to travel information.
