Suffolk County Transit gets Real-Time Tracking

Recommended Posts

Suffolk's had it for about a week or two now. Or at least that's when I first saw it. Guess I forgot to mention it here. 

I've been using that to update the SCT Roster.

Has it been fairly accurate? I remember in the beginning, it was showing certain routes running at 11PM, and the desktop site would show the bus being in one location, but the mobile site would show it being a few stops up.

There is a delay of about 4 seconds from what I've been told by a friend who used the app to track the S68 they were on about a week ago. 

If a Bus on a route has it's tracker on even when it's in the yard after it's completed the route; then the whole route would still be displaced. It's happened many time to me on both Mobile and Desktop. Not sure how long how long it needs to be inactive until it shuts itself off.

I do not have the type of cell phone to download the app on to try  and Gage it myself, though most times it wouldn't matter as the only bus I see most days usually doesn't have it's tracker on for some reason.
