Port Authority officials on Friday said three bus routes were added to the transit agency's real-time tracking system, available online.

Routes 41 Bower Hill, 56 Lincoln Place and 88 Penn bring the total number of real-time tracked routes to eight, spokeswoman Heather Pharo said. The others are the P1, P3, 8 Perrysville, 48 Arlington and 86 Liberty.

Port Authority is in the midst of updating its entire system of buses and rail cars with real-time travel information available on the agency's website, portauthority.org. All bus routes are expected to be online by the end of the year. T routes are expected to be online sometime next year, officials said.

Two app developers are in the process of incorporating Port Authority data for smartphone apps, officials said.
