We are working with Cambridgeshire County Council, Stagecoach and ACIS to use the data from metricated buses in Cambridge to help estimate congestion levels and journey times.
You can obtain real-time information on bus positions from the website
Click on the link top right to get to
and then select the bus stop you want using postcode, SMS code, by clicking on a bus stop icon on a map or by selecting a point of interest. You can then see the information displayed at that bus stop.
