Bus Text Service
Timetable information is now just a text message away. Passengers can find out which buses will be leaving their local stop via a text message sent direct to their mobile phone.
Whether at home, work, or out and about, simply text an 8-digit bus stop reference code to 84268** and you will get back the departure times of the next few buses from your chosen stop. The service is automated and operates 24 hours-a-day, every day.
For those stops without a code and yet to be updated, bus passengers can still find out their local stop code by calling Traveline on 0871 200 22 33*.
How do I find the bus stop reference code?
Bus stop reference codes are unique, so information received relates only to one specific bus stop. You might want to pick the stop nearest to your house, the stop you use to get to work, or even the stop nearest your favourite pub/restaurant. All codes are 8 digit numbers. Codes are available in a variety of ways, one of which is from the bus stop or by contacting your local transport authority via the home page of this site.
* calls cost 10p per minute from BT land lines, charges from other providers or mobiles may vary
