Real-time passenger information

Bus users can look forward to easier bus travel with the introduction of real-time passenger information (RTPI). This is live bus information at stops in:

  • Stafford
  • Cannock
  • Burton
  • Newcastle
  • Tamworth
  • i54 .

Electronic display screens have already been fitted to over a hundred of the busiest stops in these areas.

The following bus operators are now fully compliant in Staffordshire, with more to follow:

  • Arriva Midlands
  • First Potteries
  • Select Bus
  • National Express WM
  • Trent Barton
  • Stagecoach
  • Midland Classic

How does this work?

Our system uses the latest technology to track where each bus is on its route. The system then compares this information to unique timetabled information and generates a live prediction of exactly what time the bus will arrive or depart at each stop. 

How is the information displayed?

The live information tells you how long you will need to wait for the next bus and takes into account things like delays. On the screen live times will have the word 'min' afterwards and will tell you how many minutes before the bus arrives e.g. 18min.

The word 'due' will appear if a bus is about to arrive.

What is scheduled information?

Sometimes it will be necessary to show scheduled information. This is when the bus is timetabled to arrive, not necessarily when it will arrive, and the journey will disappear once the scheuled time is reached. Scheduled information will be shown using the standard 24 hour clock format e.g. 18:25
