About Track MBL Buses
Track MBL Buses is a service designed to help take the guesswork out of bus arrivals and help you to get to your stop at the same time as your bus. Track MBL Buses uses satellite technology to find the specific location of a bus; then sends the estimated arrival time to a particular stop via cell phone, website or other mobile device.
Track MBL Buses uses Global Positioning Satellite (“GPS”) technology and advanced computer modeling to track buses on their routes. Taking into account the actual position of the transit vehicles, their intended stops, and the typical traffic patterns, Track MBL Buses predicts arrivals with a high degree of accuracy. Estimates are updated constantly as vehicles are tracked.
