New NextBus Predictions
43Folders reported that NextBus has 16 new Muni lines added to their predictions (originally reported on the sf_muni blog). The new routes are:
- 49-Van Ness/Mission
- 59-Powell-Mason Cable Car
- 60-Powell-Hyde Cable Car
- 61-California Cable Car
They’re not on the NextMuni main index; you simply have to link to them directly. This isn’t an official addition (yet).
If you don’t already know, NextMuni tells you when the next bus or train will arrive at your stop. It is especially handy if you’ve got a web-enabled mobile phone. You simply load the URL (bookmarking comes in handy here) of the line you want and the direction you’re heading, and you get a prediction for when the bus or train will arrive. Most or all of the buses have GPS units and NextMuni uses them to track them.
