Bus time system is huge success

Published: Tuesday, 11th July 2017

Warrington Borough Council is celebrating the success of the bus passenger information system that was introduced in January and has seen a 10-fold increase in views.

The system monitors the real time position of the majority of buses operating scheduled bus services across the borough and sends countdown information of bus arrivals to 55 digital displays located at many of the most popular bus stops.

Passengers with internet enabled devices get reliable, live information for any of the 1,300+ bus stops across the borough.

In the first month of the service being live it received 4,156 real time enquiries. By the end of May that figure had risen to 45,764 for the month.

Cllr Hans Mundry, executive board member for transport, said: “We are very pleased with the performance of our new Real Time Passenger Information System and especially pleased with how popular it has proven to be.

“The investment that we have made in this system is further evidence that we are serious about increasing access to reliable information on sustainable travel options for our residents, businesses and visitors alike.”

Ben Wakerley, managing director Network Warrington, said: “I’m delighted to see that this service is being well used by our customers.

“It’s encouraging to see that the real time information provided is helping to make journeys easier; and we will continue to work with the council to ensure that the service continues to support sustainable travel around the borough”

To see the times online visit www.traveline.info or download one of the apps from the App Store or the Play Store – such as “Traveline UK”. Downloads are free for the majority of applications (and websites), with only a very small amount of data being used to get the real time data.
