Always know when the next bus is coming
There are over 1500 Realtime displays at bus stops across the network, they show the arrival times of the next bus counting down the minutes until your bus arrives at the stop.
How does it work?
Each bus is tracked using satellites to pinpoint their location.
The realtime system will calculate how long your bus will take to arrive at your stop. If the roads are busy with traffic, the system will calculate a slightly longer time in which your service will arrive at your stop.
Messages scroll across the bottom of the display to inform you of any changes to your service, diversions or delays.
If you notice a realtime display that is not working or has been damaged, please let us know
Who owns the realtime system?
Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council own and maintain the electronic displays.
Nottingham City Council manages the realtime display information and the scrolling messages on behalf of the local bus operators and other authorities.
