[prMac.com] Berlin/New York - TnT Brain GbR today is thrilled to announce that their new iPhone App, InTime Staten Island, is now available in Apple's App Store. InTime Staten Island is a utility App that shows real-time bus locations and arrival times for the bus lines of Metropolitan Transportation Authority in Staten Island - New York City.
With InTime Staten Island users can always be just InTime at the bus stop even if the bus is too late. The App displays arrival times and bus locations provided by MTA's new Bus Time tracking system that has been recently installed for all Staten Island bus lines. This new system is able to track the buses on their route and can estimate the arrival times with a high degree of accuracy. InTime Staten Island is constantly getting their real-time data and is therefore always up-to-date.
"I am extremely pleased with InTime Staten Island. The goal was to build an app that shows at a glimpse the arrival times of the buses the users are interested in." said Torsten Geise, co-founder of TnT Brain. "We have been in New York several times and we often rushed for the next bus to find out, that we just missed it and had to wait for the next one". "It makes so much sense to display the times based on real-time data, and we are really happy that MTA is providing that information. Using this App we have now the annunciator panel just in our pocket."
InTime Staten Island provides GPS-based arrival times for more than 2.050 bus stops and also displays the current bus locations on a map. Using this App users don't have to wait any longer at a bus stop without knowing when the next bus will arrive. They are able to track the exact location of the buses and get the predicted arrival time at a glance.
InTime Staten Island will also be integrated in the other well-known App from TnT Brain, InTime NYC, which contains even more real-time and also schedule data for other providers in the NYC area, for example for NYC Subway, Metro-North Railroad, Long-Island Railroad, NYC Downtown Connection and much more.
