What is NextBus@CCNY?
NextBus @ CCNY is a new information system to track and report on the current positions and arrival predictions of City College shuttle buses. With the new NextBus information system, students, faculty and staff will be able to know when the next shuttle bus will arrive. Our CCNY buses are now equipped with GPS devices that will allow for real-time tracking for both of the bus routes: the 145th Street Loop and the 125th Street Loop. The current schedule of operation for the CCNY buses is available at:
 http://www.ccny.cuny.edu/current/subway.cfm.

How do I view the current locations and arrival times of the buses?
