Real time bus information - an update

Last night's Evening Telegraph highlighted the continuing situation regarding the 'switch-off' of real time bus information in the city, an issue I first mentioned back in February.

As I indicate in the article, the Head of Transportation at the City Council has advised me that correcting wiring faults has been a challenge given the confined space the wiring is situated in and it may be a few weeks until all displays are back working properly. The approach taken - targeting the City Centre and other high-use bus shelters first - is sensible.

However, I am anxious that we see the real time information on at all locations as soon as possible.
