A further 30 bus routes are now returning real-time information, continuing the mass roll out of this highly anticipated data.

The latest routes to be added are:

  • 688, 689, 690, 694, 695, 696, 697 and 699

This information will be available via Next 5 on the PTV website and in the latest version of the popular PTV mobile app which includes real-time information for trams, buses and disruption information.

In the PTV mobile apps, real-time information can be accessed via Next 5 and is shown as a countdown timer in minutes, instead of a clock time.

This brings the number of real-time bus information routes up to 84, expanding on the previous 54. 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 phased roll out of real-time bus information is progressing and more real-time bus information will continue to be made available in the future.
