The ESG have issued the following statement welcoming the latest bus tracker web app.
The ESG welcomes the recent launch of the online bus tracking service on routes 2 and 3 and hopes that other routes will soon follow.
It is undeniable that such a service will improve the process of moving more people away from their reliance on cars, as it will provide greater confidence on the reliability and timing of a public transport service that is more user-friendly and better.
Clearly heavy traffic and also high demand at peak hours will continue to impact on the smooth running of the bus service. Also, the group considers that issues including changes to routes, paying and non-paying parking, bus design and unnecessary engine idling, still need addressing.
However the ESG believes that the introduction of this long anticipated online facility is a welcome and important step in the right direction.
