Minutes to next bus at touch of a screen

Forget frustrated waits at the bus stop - Christchurch bus users will now be able to find out when the next bus is due by using their cellphones.

Metro has made its website more mobile-friendly, so that people can access bus information more easily on their phones.

Smartphone users can find out when the next bus is due by typing in a bus stop number or street and see real-time information showing how many minutes until the next bus is due at that stop.

Environment Canterbury marketing team leader Jo Dawkins demonstrated yesterday how to use the information.
