Get NJ Transit Bus schedules by text!

Quick bus schedule info at your fingertips!

I don’t ride the buses in Hoboken often – but Hoboken411 reader bmacqueens sent in a good tip about a new and convenient service!

NJ Transit now offers “MyBus,” which allows you to simply text your bus stop ID – and get the next five scheduled buses to arrive at that spot. It gives you the bus number, (scheduled) arrival time and name. The MyBus SMS text address is: 69287. Program that into your phone now.

You can either go to MyBus to get your bus stop ID – or see the convenient list of Hoboken stops I’ve prepared for you below!

I suppose this isn’t all that helpful if buses are running behind schedule – or if the weather is bad?

Do you use this service? Has it been helpful at all yet?

I tried this once from work on Friday and it worked great. But when I tried it again on Saturday (when I actually needed it), it didn’t work at all.

So, sort of like the rest of NJ Transit.

I’m guessing they are still working out the kinks, but I have to give njtrasnit some credit here for a great service (as long as it works)[quote comment=”199560″]I tried this once from work on Friday and it worked great.
