The answer for this question is YES, but for the full answer we need to speak about how is it working.
How phone number tracking works?
Each mobile phone have an unique ID number (IMEI, MEID, etc) and phones are always connected to the nearest cell tower so the service provider can determinate the location of the phone by checking these connections. The service provider enter the number of the mobile phone what they want to locate and they check the unique ID of the cellphone, after that they can check that which tower registered this ID last. The accuracy of this position info is depends on the consistency of cell towers but usually it’s about 0.5-2 km.

Absolutely not! If you have a company with a mobile phone fleet you can sign a contract with your service provider for montly fee to determinate the location of the mobile phones owned by your company but locating other people’s phone is not possible because of human rights. To law enforcement requests the service providers are share this information with the authorized office.
