Hull City Council is adding QR codes all bus stop timetable displays in the city to provide passengers with real time information.

It is working on the project with bus operators Stagecoach and East Yorkshire as part of the Hull Bus Alliance.

By scanning the codes with a QR enabled smartphone, passengers will be directed to a web page providing updates on arrival times to the bus stop at which they are waiting. It applies for both of the operators’ services.

The council said this is aimed at improving accessibility to public transport and promoting greener travel.

A step further

Cllr Mark Ieronimo, portfolio holder for transport, said: “We already have real time digital displays at some bus stops in Hull, and these QR codes take this a step further by making this information available to passengers at every stop that displays a bus timetable.

“These QR codes will make help make travelling by bus that little bit easier by helping those with smartphones access real time information quicker.”
