Real-time trip updates and digital timetables for Orange and Griffith
Orange and Griffith bus customers can now plan bus trips and make better-informed travel decisions using digital timetable information and real-time updates.
Customers in Orange can now use digital tools and apps to plan their new bus trips as part of bus service improvements in the region.
Customers can plan a trip by:
- Using the Trip Planner or other digital tools
- Downloading the Opal Travel app
- Sending a travel query to our Facebook Messenger bot
- Asking Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa to ‘talk to Transport NSW’; or
- Choosing from a range of third-party transport apps available.
Customers can now receive real-time information including bus location, estimated arrival time at a stop and occupancy status giving an indication of how many people are already on board the bus, thanks to state-of-the-art automatic passenger counting and vehicle tracking technology.
The technology shares information on how full services are, and about any delays or planned service changes in real-time. Customers can see how far away a bus is before they start their trip, and parents will be able to check the progress of their child's school bus.
Orange and Griffith join Albury, Greater Nowra, Tamworth, Armidale, Bathurst, Bega, Coffs Harbour, Dubbo, Forbes, Grafton, Parkes, Port Macquarie, Queanbeyan, Tweed Heads and Wagga Wagga in receiving digital timetables and real-time information, allowing customers to plan trips using digital tools and apps.
