Bus stop txt service

Simply text your bus stop number to 3666.

The bus arrival information in the text message will appear as 'Real Time' information shown in minutes. If Real Time is not available for that service, the information will appear as Scheduled Time shown in a 24 hour clock format. The message may come in the format of shortened words/txt format.

BusStp 5355@15:59, 090 WESTGATE 16:07 8 mins, 090 WESTGATE 16:57 , 09X STURGES ROAD 17:15 , 090 WESTGATE 17:40

So the above text response translates as:

  • Bus stop number 5355 was texted at 3.59pm
  • At 4:07pm, Route 090 to Westgate is scheduled to arrive at this stop. According to The 'Real Time' information the 090 is approximately 8mins away.
  • 'Scheduled Time' is shown as the next timetabled bus using the 24 hour clock e.g. 16.07
  • 'Real Time' is shown as number of minutes before bus arrival e.g. 8 Mins

Each text response received costs 30 cents (inc GST) charged to your mobile phone account. Your 4-digit bus stop number can usually be found displayed on bus stop poles or timetable information posters. If you do not know your bus stop number or cannot find one at your bus stop, you can find it on a map here.
