There are several ways to get bus times or plan a journey on your mobile phone.
For details of next departures from any bus stop in Britain including where available real time predicted times and/or scheduled departure times send the stop code for your stop to 84268 the traveline-txt service. Each enquiry costs 25p plus one standard message (25p is not charged in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambs or Lincs). We show the “SMS codes” on separate pages at the back of each service timetable in PDF format, or in the mouse-over popup for each stop on the on screen (HTML) service timetable, and they are also available on Google Maps and at many roadside stops. You can use the codes in traveline-txt SMS service or with Nextbuses.
