New Real Time Passenger Information signs to be installed at bus stops throughout Wiltshire

Wiltshire Council is installing 188 new Real Time Passenger Information (RTPI) digital signs at bus stops across the county to give bus users access to up-to-the-minute journey information.

Published 26 August 2022

The new signs, which will cost around £600,000, will be installed during October and November, and will replace the current outdated signage, which has been in place for many years and has reached the end of its life.

In order to make the switch over to the new signs, the old signs will be switched off on 31 August, and there will be no RTPI signs in service at Wiltshire bus stops during September. This is because the computer system that controls the new signs is incompatible with the old versions.

Cllr Richard Clewer, Leader of Wiltshire Council, said: "This is a significant investment into Wiltshire's public transport system that will improve the experience for bus users throughout the county.

"The new digital signs will be rolled out in phases during October and November and will become operational soon after that.

"Unfortunately, because the old signs are at the end of their life, we will have to turn them off on 31 August and there won't be any real-time digital signs in use at Wiltshire bus stops until the rollout of the new signage has been completed.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this short break in the RTPI service, but we're confident that the wait will be worth it, and soon people can enjoy greatly improved digital and real-time signage at bus stops throughout the county."
