La NextBus

This morning I was Googlemapping some coordinates when I happened upon my new favorite website (of the day): NextBus.

Using GPS technology, the site enables you to follow real buses in real cities, as they inch toward their destinations. For example, check out the Muni #22 line in San Francisco, now, in real time, as at least a dozen commuters wonder "what's taking the darn thing so long?!"

I highly recommend clicking around the radio buttons, too, and trying "Hybrid" mode for even more fun.
