The city's bus service, Mountain Metropolitan Transit, now has "My Next Bus" information available through Google Maps. The service allows riders to find bus stops and departure times, plan trips, and get real-time information on bus arrivals on their phone.

"We've had real-time information at our downtown terminal and at some key transfer locations for a while, but now customers have this information at their fingertips, accessible while they are traveling," Craig Blewitt, MMT director, stated in a press release. "Google Maps displays real-time predictions based on the position of the bus, using live GPS data, combined with the speed, to give customers an estimate of when their bus will arrive."
