Passengers who have noticed that the electronic stand indicator and departure screen at Lancaster Bus Station hasn't been working recently will be pleased to hear that the problem is well on the way to being sorted out.
Following the end of the previous data contract a new broadband line is now in place and whilst the display may be "up and down" a few times as the connection "profiles itself" there will soon be a stable connection in place.
Normal service will then be resumed, and the new connection will allow an enhanced display including real time information to be provided in due course.
Also on the way is free public wifi. This is already in place on Stagecoach buses on service 2/2A but will soon be available to everyone on the bus station concourse as soon as the City Council installs the necessary data points.
