North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner, ENGIE, have installed eight more Real Time Information (RTI) boards across Scartho Road and Cromwell Road in Grimsby. 

Six screens have been installed along Scartho Road and two additional ones have been installed on Cromwell Road.

The RTI signs provide bus passengers with the latest journey information and estimates when they can expect the next bus to arrive.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “We have now installed a total of 63 RTI screens across bus stops in the area. These screens are of great use to bus passengers in allowing them to plan their journeys and keep up to date with any changes.

“We’re committed to improving public transport in the area and officers will continue to identify further RTI screen locations and make improvements when funding is available.”

Stagecoach’s Grimsby and Cleethorpes bus fleet is fitted with satellite tracking technology which automatically transmits the position of the bus to a central system that calculates the expected arrival times to the specific bus stop. The tracking system is able to factor in current traffic conditions to ensure the arrival times are as accurate as possible.
