Real Time Info ~ Updated

The testing of real time bus information has started in the Great Yarmouth area.

My first experience of its use was the recent appearance of an information pillar at the south end of the town's Market Gates Bus Station close to its junction with Regent Road.

The display of real time information was first noted on Tuesday of last week. First Eastern Counties workings were shown along with the BorderBus 580 journeys.

Information on the other sides included a diagrammatic bus map of the area, local attractions with connecting bus services plus a rail timetable.

Whilst this is much needed, particularly during the summer months, I noted at the time that it was already out of date with Anglianbus (Konectbus) 61 no longer operating from Market Gates. However, the information has subsequently been corrected on all three panels - well done to those responsible!

Bus stops at the terminus already use the information plus there are also screens appearing at selected sites throughout the area which I have yet to see in use.
