Catching the bus gets easier

OmniSky subscribers now have access to real-time information on public transportation arrivals, the company said Wednesday. Under an agreement with NextBus Information Systems, OmniSky will offer constant updates on mass transit systems in California, Massachusetts and Delaware. Specifically, riders can get information about when the next vehicle will arrive at their chosen stop. OmniSky's service is offered on a number of handheld computers, including the Palm V and Vx, Handspring's Visor Prism and Visor Platinum, Hewlett-Packard's Jornada 540 Pocket PC and soon on Compaq's iPaq Pocket PC.
