Realtime bus information
nextBus is our real time information service which tracks a bus's journey as it happens, showing exactly when this service is going to arrive at a particular stop. Most buses in Buckinghamshire are fitted with a tracking device, which means bus passengers can access live real time departures on their mobile phone, online or at display screens at key stops. Real time is shown in minutes e.g 12 mins, when this isn't available the display shows the scheduled 'timetable' time in 24 hour clock e.g 1249.

Electronic bus stops
Real time displays are being installed at many of the county's bus stops. The majority of these are electronic bus stop displays (IBIS units) over half of which are solar powered. As well as providing passengers with real time information at their finger tips, IBIS units show route maps, scheduled timetables and local information pages, which have been used to show road closures and bus route diversions. They also supply an audio facility for passenger with difficulties reading the text. Real time displays are also available at Buckinghamshire’s bus stations and around the towns in Aylesbury and High Wycombe.
