Bus Tracking website
RE: Bus Tracking website
No D&G showing anywhere though and they use Ticketers. High Peak are on though

Works for me

When I was checking, it was later on. High Peak, First, Cumfybus, Rosso, Diamond West Mids, Reading Buses, GoAhead, Courtney buses, Uno all have ticketer and are on this system.

I wonder if Ticketer have an option within the operator options so the operator can activate public live tracking and then Bustimes.org uses the data from that.

The few Stagecoach and Arriva buses I can't explain. They must have individually shared their live tracking data thing (there is a special name for I but I can't remember it off the top of my head)

Depends how far the bus is from a timing point and how far apart they are. I quite often end up waiting 5 mins in Wilmslow so if I was clocked on this say 2 stops before Bank Square I would show 5 early.

Yep I don;t disagree. I guess its also possible that there Ticketer machines are not set to the right time as well.

If there are several timing points, the driver can only see these, not the stops in-between. They have no way of knowing if they are running early past the stops in-between the timing points.

I may be wrong but I think the former chancellor, George Osborne, was instrumental in this development. Within Merseyside, at least, Google provides real-time information for all operators but not fleet or reg numbers unlike iBus in London.

In Merseyside you have the Arriva live map, although it's not perfect, doesn't show the fleet number. Stagecoach on the other hand are irritating, no live map, & there app is awful in every way, you need to give permission for them to access your phone first, highly intrusive.
