All metropolitan Melbourne bus routes now returning real-time information

Added: 29 December 2015

Today the final group of bus routes returning real time information in metropolitan Melbourne has been released.

Phased over the past 6 months, this project provides customers with real time information for all Melbourne buses via the PTV website and PTV mobile app.

Real-time information can be accessed via Next 5 and is shown as a countdown timer in minutes, instead of a clock time.

This now concludes the release of real time information for metropolitan Melbourne bus routes and work will now commence on releasing bus routes in regional Victoria.

Real-time information is providing huge benefits to customers using bus services, enabling them to better plan their journey on the network. It is also enhancing operational management capabilities for PTV and bus operators.

The latest routes to be added are:

  • 150, 151, 153, 160, 161, 166, 167, 170, 180, 181, 190, 191 and 192
  • 400, 406, 407, 408, 409, 410, 411, 412, 414, 415, 417, 418, 419, 421, 423, 424, 425, 439, 441, 443, 465, 467, 468, 477, 478, 479, 481, 482, 483, 484, 485, 486, 487, 488, 489, 490, 494, 495, 496, 497 and 498
