Real time information removes the uncertainty a passenger feels when waiting at a bus stop, by providing the arrival time of the next bus.
Buses are tracked using satellites to pinpoint their location. It is then calculated how long each bus will take to arrive at your stop.
Accessing real time information
You can access real time information from a computer or mobile phone with internet access. Visit the Next buses mobile website to view live real time information if available. If this is not available the website will display scheduled times.
Bustracker can help you find the departure time of your next bus. Text the stop number to 64422 to receive a message advising you when your next bus is due.
You can use traveline to plan journeys across the UK, and allows you to plan a journey using buses, trains, metros and ferries, displaying where you need to board, at what time, and if there are any changes.
