(WUSA) -- Ride On riders in Montgomery County, Md. now have a new way to keep track of when the next bus will arrive at their stops.
Ride On Real Time allows passengers to get real-time information on bus arrivals via the internet, texting or cell phone apps.
According to county authorities, last year Ride On added identification numbers to the signs at each bus stop. The real time system will use those ID's to give arriving bus times at that stop.
You can get to Ride On Real Time online at www.RideOnRealTime.com or use the Ride On Real Time App. You can also text the bus stop ID number to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you're going to text, be sure to check with your cell phone provider to see if additional charges apply.
Ride On Real Time also has a "notify me" option, a real time map, bus schedules and a trip planner.
