Bus Talk 13: Accessing bus-stop info

Bus Talk column - 19 October 2017

We’ve had some feedback that bus-users want to know ways to find their nearest bus stop, to help plan their bus journey around Dunedin.

We don’t show the 844 Dunedin bus-stops on the network map in the booklet-style timetable – but there are several other ways you can access bus information, including Google Maps, Journey Planner, and on www.orc.govt.nz/dunedinbus

Feedback from one bus-user said Google Maps was a great way to plan her bus journeys and another said Journey Planner worked well. The Google Maps driven Journey Planner tool is accessible from www.orc.govt.nz/dunedinbus.

Give it a go — it’s as simple as entering your departure point and where you want to go. Journey Planner will recommend the correct bus to take, the route it will travel, and bus stops along the way. By zooming in on your route, you can see each bus-stop – shown by a white bus inside a blue square.

Other useful information is the walking route to your nearest bus-stop and from your bus stop to your destination at the other end.
