Thanks for showcasing my site on Indian railways. I have set up another for showing GPS locations of Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation buses.

It shows the live positions of around 350 BMTC buses(out of 5000 odd buses) on google maps. Selection can be done based on route number or bus registration number. A mobile friendly page is also provided.
