About the Young’s Bus Service Live Timetable
The Live Timetable is an online application that provides to-the-minute visual information on the location of all Young’s buses.
The service allows you to:
- Track any bus and see its real-time location on map.
- View the ETA for any service.
- View any bus route on map.
- Find the closest bus stop to you.
The Live Timetable delivers a stream of information previously unattainable to your smartphone or computer. Your phone’s GPS can also be used to mark your location on map, so finding a bus stop has never been easier.
Live Timetable Benefits
Unlike a traditional timetable, the Live Timetable updates ETAs for each service every 30 seconds; changing with the conditions of the road. You will know how far away your bus is and how long you will be waiting at the stop. If the service is delayed or interrupted, the Live Timetable will generate a new ETA and save you in waiting time. The Live Timetable enhances the passenger experience by letting you know before you have to go.
How it works
GPS tracking units that are fitted into every Young’s bus transmit location data to an in-house server. This information is then used to calculate estimated times of arrival for each stop across all of our services. The ETA’s are then applied to the Live Timetable application to be accessed by a smartphone or computer. This whole process updates every 30 seconds to give you the most accurate information technologically achievable. The Live Timetable delivers a stream of real-time information to your fingertips, changing the way you catch public transport.
