Bus Countdown clocks for Lewisham

The locations for the first Bus Countdown signs, which tell you how long you have to wait until the next bus will arrive and if there are any problems on the route, have been revealed.


Key locations in the area include Crofton Park Station, Lewisham College, New Cross Station and Lewisham town centre.

Thanks to Ramble for the tip-off.

So there's none for Brockley? Brilliant.

TfL were supposed to be creating an app for real time information on all buses like there is for other cities. It was supposed to come out last year.

I can't check the map but if there's none for Brockley then that's just blah! It's the little things than can make a difference.

Today upon arriving at London Bridge the gates to Northern/Jubilee line were locked. It would be so good if the drivers on Southern were able to relay information like that to us, so we can adapt our onward journey if needed.

None for Brockley, except the ones in Crofton Park and on Lewisham Way.

Sensational! Was just moaning about the lack of these signs with fellow forlorn night-bus waiters last night, as the timetables posted mean nothing. Looks like they've got them outside New Cross where lots of middle of night night-bus changing happens, cooool!

I think they have been on some stops in lewisham for quite a while.

That's pretty crap. There are so many in Lewisham town centre that they overlap on the map, yet Brockley Cross is at the centre of a large area that has none at all. Not impressed!

Leave earlier and be more patient - is advice that would probably annoy me.

Are they widening the pavement on the Barge side? That pavement is so narrow that you are forced into the road if there is a queue at the bus stop. If not then the pavement widening across the road seems increasingly odd.

It is odd
It's March again - using up the budget before the year end?

They're a complete waste of money and pointless.

The one car parking space closest to Cranfield Road is going to be difficult to manoeuvre into - blocking fast moving traffic every time. If the bus route ever gets made one-way around Cranfield and Harefield Rd then they would have to be removed.

Considering they've had 'Countdown' in north London since at least 1996 and it always worked brilliantly when I used it. I never understood why it was not rolled out across the network...

I believe this is a newer, more accurate system.

Headhunter said...

My experience of "countdown" elsewhere is that it's never been particularly accurate. It's the same with the Tube, 1 minute til the next train is often more like 5+!

Its probably triggered by the bus as it passes each stop.

They have them near my work in Islington and they're really not very accurate. Usually about 5 buses show up as "due" for up to 10 minutes, and then the bus that comes first is unlikely to be the one on top of their list.

Im really not sure these are the same system. I THINK these will be more accurate and give more information
