Real Time Passenger Information (RTPI)

Real Time Passenger Information provides you with information about public transport services in 'real time'. This allows you to see which services are due to your stop and what time they are expected to arrive. 

Bus Services RTPI

The RTPI display includes the Service Number, Destination and a countdown until the arrival of the bus. When the bus is less than a minute away the display will show ‘DUE’ rather than a time.   There are around 330 live RTPI signs in Cornwall.  

A guide on how to read a Real Time Passenger Information display for bus services is available - Reading your real time display

Real Time Information displays are also available at most railway stations within the County.  

Mobile Apps 

The most up to date times for buses can be accessed on your mobile via a number of transport apps.  They use data either direct from the bus operators or from Traveline South West.

First Kernow and Go Cornwall buses also have their own travel apps.  These allow you to access bus information in real time and to plan your future bus journey.  You can also purchase tickets through these apps.  

The Council will shortly be releasing a journey planning ‘Travel Companion App’ which will allow you to:

  • plan journeys across all travel modes including bus, rail, ferry and car
  • view real time journey information. 

Future plans for the app will include:

  • ability to pay for travel journeys
  • pay for car parking tariffs
  • see car parking capacities
  • walking and cycling directions.
