The Oxford Bus Company and Thames Travel have launched a revamped mobile app. New features include real time tracking, a capacity checker, live travel updates and an improved journey planner. The operators said the new app was created following customer feedback and redesigned to provide more intuitive menus and better real-time information.
Phil Southall, Oxford Bus Company and Thames Travel Managing Director, said: “We are committed to making bus and coach travel as accessible as possible for customers and technology helps us provide access to key information for passengers.

“Technology is constantly evolving, and we have invested in upgrading our app to take it to the next level. Many of the new features were included following customer feedback and our core focus of the new app was to make it user friendly and informative. One of the new features enables passengers to see how busy a bus is before it arrives, which will help manage social distancing measures while they remain in place.”
