Real-time bus info live

Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS WELCOME -

CATCH­ING a bus from Sun­shine Plaza just be­came eas­ier with the in­tro­duc­tion of real-time de­par­ture in­for­ma­tion.

Sun­shine Coast Coun­cil has in­tro­duced a smart, cre­ative way to leave the car at home and give the bus a go for your next trip to the shopping and en­ter­tain­ment precinct.

Trans­port Port­fo­lio Coun­cil­lor Rick Baberowski said shop­pers could use ex­ist­ing dig­i­tal di­rec­tory kiosks lo­cated through­out the cen­tre to check when the next bus is ex­pected to leave Ma­roochy­dore sta­tion.

The in­tro­duc­tion of real-time bus in­for­ma­tion on screens in Sun­shine Plaza was funded by coun­cil’s Trans­port Levy.

Plaza man­ager Michael Man­war­ing thanked coun­cil.

“Hav­ing real-time bus in­for­ma­tion at shop­pers’ fin­ger­tips is a great new fea­ture for the cen­tre’s dig­i­tal di­rec­tory screens.”

Cr Baberowski said real-time data gave shop­pers the op­por­tu­nity to make on-the-spot de­ci­sions ac­cord­ing to ac­tual travel time.
