1  All across the Great Western territory / Smoke and Mirrors / Re: Accuracy of real time data on: March 22, 2020, 01:04:44 pm
I think I related elsewhere about my most recent experience of this.  I was waiting for the bus to Bodmin Parkway at Bodmin General station. The bus I was waiting for was on the screen and the 'due' time commenced to count down in minutes.  When it got to zero the bus hadn't arrived, and it then disappeared off the screen.  Ten minutes later and the bus still hadn't arrived, so I started to walk down the hill towards the town centre, hoping to find a taxi.  Then, guess what....... Roll Eyes

Did it display x mins gradually reducing or show a fixed time before disappearing of the screen?

RTPI is reliant on a number of factors.  Accurate schedule data, gps tracking working, rural mobile signal to transmit the GPS positions and so on.

I’ve done it today for a trip from Westbury to Cornwall on the 1503 ex Paddington.  Got the upgrade for £11 on top of a £32 Advance Fare.

On the service I am on there are some seats reserved from PAD to PNZ that state Seatfrog on the reservation label in the seat back.

You may also notice that often gives different suggestions to those provided by Traveline South west and Traveline South east & anglia. Quite why that is I do not know.

Different Journey Planning engines sit underneath the national and regional Traveline services.

A bus company can register a service with a minimal number of stops detailed on the service registration.  The public timetable usually expands this to key points.

The full stop listing on Traveline are generally calculated not provided by bus companies hence the difference in how stops information is displayed.

Thanks for that, i wasnt sure as the journey planners I have searched have offered both options for the same fare, I will play safe and use journeys that have the change at Newton Abbot.

Is travel allowed via Exeter St Davids if a suitable connection is not available at Newton Abbot?

Can anyone advise if it is OK to break a Redruth to St Austell journey at Truro when using a off peak single?
