Port Authority adds bus routes to real-time tracking system
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.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
