Bus information, routes and timetables

Changes to bus services from 1 August

There will be some minor timetable changes off-peak to the 171 and 172 services, and extended early morning and late evening services.

The 194 service will have a new timetable to improve reliability, and more services at peak times and on early Saturday mornings.

As a result of central government's challenge to council budgets, the council-supported 157 and 158 services will run on an hourly basis from 1 August. The 157 will leave the bus station on the hour and the 158 on the half-hour.

Details of all these changes can be found on the Courtney Buses website.

'Real Time' information

Courtney buses are fitted with special technology so they can be tracked as they are driven round their routes. This makes it possible to predict when the bus is likely to arrive at each stop, and allows passengers to plan their journeys better.

To get this this information, you can:

Real time information will be displayed in minutes, for example, ‘6 mins’. Where real time information is not available, timetable information will be displayed in the usual clock format – for example, ‘11:47’.

You may see a ‘QR’ code at your bus stop similar to the one below. Scan this code with your smart phone to be taken directly to a website showing real time information for that stop.
