Waiting for the B63, Old Style

So the MTA is rolling out the text option to figuring out when the damn bus will arrive, and the B63 is a pilot route.  I waited for the B63 at Fifth & 41st today, where the text instructions are clearly displayed.  Too bad they've taken away the option to actually read a bus timetable, so those of us disinclined (or unable) to find out the bus location by phone are left in the dark.  At this stop the only timetable left is for buses going in the other direction. Seems like a way to abandon schedules altogether, under the pretext of passenger convenience.  Good move, MTA.
