Where is my bus?

Bus users in Bedford Borough can now find out exactly when their bus will arrive – without even going outside!

 

Real Time Passenger Information (RTPI) is now available on the Bedford Borough Council website through a PC, laptop, tablet or internet enabled smartphone.

 

RTPI uses GPS technology to accurately predict when the next service will arrive at a specified bus stop. So, if it is cold and wet outside or you want to know if you have time to do one more job before you leave work, you can quickly check online and see when your bus will arrive and save yourself time!

 

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “At a time when many other local authorities are cutting bus services in their communities we have been protecting and improving them, and this new service is more good news for bus users.

 

“We have worked with local bus operators to significantly expand Sunday and evening services as well as working with rural communities to protect a strong network of rural bus services, which many people rely on.

 

“Putting Real Time Passenger Information in the hands of local bus users will make a real, positive difference and should make catching   the bus in Bedford Borough even more convenient and attractive.”

 

The Real Time Passenger Information is available at www.bedford.gov.uk/rtpi On this page is a map of Bedford Borough. Users simply click on their bus stop to see the times of arrival for the next few buses. QR codes will also be added to bus stops and anyone with a smartphone and barcode scanner app can scan the code and see the times for that stop on their phone.

 

The service will continue to be improved and further options added in the future.
