Mobile phone travel updates for Hertfordshire bus users

BUS users in Hertfordshire can now get travel information direct to their mobiles, thanks to a new phone app.

Hertfordshire County Council has introduced Quick Response (QR) codes – a new system that allows public transport users to get scheduled departure information from any bus stop in the county.

The software allows people to scan a stop’s QR Code using a reader which can be downloaded for free from App Stores or on a mobile’s internet browser.

Users will then receive or be directed to the information.

For more information visit and click on “Departures”.

Cllr Stuart Pile, executive member for highways and transport, said: “The real benefit of this new software is that it allows us to deliver information at locations where an electronic departures screen would never be placed so that even rural communities can benefit from scheduled information.”
