We know what your doing!!

The GPS was officially switched on last Monday on route 4 & 5, Below is a brief explination of what all the things mean on the GPS screen. (If you get on one of our buses you’ll see this screen under the Ticket Machine)

As you can see, My next Timing Point is Windermere Drive, Lakes Estate, and as I was already at that stop the system is stating that I’m 1 Minute early. Eventually this machine will also be used for the radio system and the depot will be able to send messages to drivers too! All very technical!

  1. The upside of it is that it should reduce the issues with early running on some routes (the last evening 26E is a prime example – it’s been known to leave CMK as much as 10 minutes early – hopefully it will be identified for a timetable change as a result of data collected).

    There is a greater problem of off-route running on some contracted services (it’s endemic on the 3Es, particularly those operated by a specific Red Rose driver), but as they aren’t on the GPS it won’t get found out, sadly.
