I heard that this Sunday is supposed to be the official launch day for BusTime in Queens and Brooklyn.

It looks like it’s already up and running – I can see the Queens routes on the website.

Maybe the MTA got it up and running early. They need to replace the bus schedules and put the new ones that has “bustime” logo and info on it.

The stop codes are available on the bustime.mta.info website, or by texting back and forth until the schedule for the stop you’re at comes up (location, route, direction, then it texts you back with the stop code).
