[prMac.com] Berlin/ New York - TnT Brain GbR today is pleased to announce that their mobile App, InTime NYC, has been extended by real-time departure information for MTA's bus line B63. InTime NYC is a utility iPhone/iPod touch App that shows departure information for almost all public transportation systems in the greater New York City area. It is not limited to just the NYC subway system but it contains additional schedules for Metro-North Railroad (Lines East of Hudson), Long Island Railroad, New Jersey Transit, and Norwalk Transit. The new version has been extended to display real-time departure information for MTA's bus line B63 and is now available in Apple's App Store.
InTime NYC is useful for everyone using the public transportation systems in and around NYC, who simply wants to see how much time is left until the next departure of the favorite transport. InTime NYC is easy to use and it shows right away the next departure times for the selected stops. In case of the B63 bus line, this information is not only based on schedule data, but also on real-time data provided by MTA's new bus tracking system (MTA BusTime), i.e. the displayed data are much more reliable.
"I am extremely pleased with InTime NYC. The goal was to build an app that shows at a glimpse the departure times of the trains and buses the users are interested in, without plenty of navigation levels and button taps." said Torsten Geise, co-founder of TnT Brain. "With the new version we made an important step further: We extended InTime NYC to show the real-time departure information from MTA's bus line B63. So from now on, schedule departure information and, if available, real-time data can be displayed within the same App. We even display the exact location of the next B63 buses on a map, so being InTime to catch the transport will become much easier."
InTime NYC is based on the official data provided by the transit authorities (MTA, NJ Transit, and Norwalk Transit). All together, InTime NYC contains the schedule data of more than 1.150 stops from the greater New York City area.
