Public Transportation…your bus trip is getting better!

A local community group is working to improve the public transportation in its service area. Wicker Park/Bucktown (WPB) has installed 6 sites for the Bustracker program. The installations allow you to get real time updates on the buses scheduled to arrive and depart and provide information on local activities and events.  Real time updates means that you will be able to make an educated decision whether to take the train instead, know if you have to grab a cab or call to let someone know you will be late.

I used to take the bus to work every day but I had a couple of options and I hated not knowing if the bus was about to turn the corner or if I should jump on my alternate–I spent several a cold, hot or rainy hour waiting unnecessarily. This is a great idea. Below are the location that bus tracker is live in, now, more to come.
