Net Devices With NextBus you will know the answer. You can get actual arrival information — not schedules — for your bus or train stops on your handheld Internet device. NextBus is not a static schedule listing — it is actual arrival information, updated at regular intervals. NextBus uses satellite technology and advanced computer modeling to track vehicles on their routes. Each vehicle is fitted with a satellite tracking system. Taking into account the actual position of the buses, their intended stops, and the typical traffic patterns, NextBus can estimate vehicle arrivals with a high degree of accuracy. This estimate is updated constantly. NextBus is not available in my area, but if you've tried it out let us know what you think.
