The Chicago Transit Authority's new bus tracker program is expanding.Beginning Monday morning, real-time locations information will be available for 67 of the system's 153 bus routes. Among the routes being added are the number 7 Harrison, 8 Halsted and 12 Roosevelt.

The bus tracker program provides commuters with the location and direction of each bus currently in service. An alarm feature also alerts customers when a bus is approaching their selected stop.

The system is accessible from computers and Web-enabled wireless devices.

The CTA says even more bus routes will be added to the service throughout the coming months.
