Realtime bus information

nextBus gives real time information, it tracks a bus's journey, showing exactly when the bus is going to arrive. Most buses in Bucks are tracked through the ticket machines, this tells you how far away your stop the bus is.

Update 4 March 2019: Due to some teething problems with Arriva's new ticket machines there is a problem with our tracking data receiving their real time supply. We are working with Arriva to get this fixed in due course.
