New York Buses Live on Google Maps

MTA Bus Time is a Google Map that shows the live position of buses on New York's bus system. Currently the map tracks all bus routes in Staten Island and will be rolled out to other NYC boroughs, with expected completion in 2013.

It is possible to search the map by intersection, bus route or individual bus stop. If you click on an individual bus you can view its next three stops. If you have a mobile phone you can use the QR codes posted on bus-stops to find out when your next bus is due.

I think you are overtaking yourself. We haven't even got bus routes themselves on google maps. The subway is finally there sometimes (unless you try to print it, whereupon it disappears!). Who did this? Does anybody know if there will ever be a bus layer? Real time would b wonderful if you knew the bus routes....
