Electronic displays at Keighley Bus Station
are now providing passengers with real-time information about when
their services will depart.
People waiting can see a
minute-by-minute countdown until their bus leaves. If for any
reason the real real-time information isn't available, the display
still shows the bus's scheduled departure time.
Keighley is the first of West
Yorkshire's eight main bus stations to come on-line with the
yournextbus real-time information service as part of a £184k
technology update Metro is carrying out with partner ACIS.
Metro's major bus stations in
Bradford, Dewsbury, Halifax, Huddersfield, Leeds and Pontefract and
Arriva's Wakefield Bus Station will all have real-time displays by
the end of summer 2009.
Newer bus stations that Metro has
built in in Batley, Cleckheaton and Ossett are already show
real-time departures on their display boards.
Introduced in September 2006,
yournextbus has now sent approaching 5 million texts to passengers
telling them when their buses are due. The real-time information is
also available on-line and through WAP and on shelter displays at
almost 1,000 key stops throughout the county.
