Bus information

Real time bus information

Want to know how your bus is running? See our real time passenger information.


NextBuses is a mobile internet service which makes it possible to find bus times on your mobile internet enabled phone. iPhone and Android phone apps are also available. With the NextBuses service you can select a bus stop close to where you are and for that bus stop find the next bus times.

Scheduled bus times are shown if live times are not available. Normal data charges from your mobile phone operator apply. Speed and access to the service is subject to your network connection.

You can also check the next buses from a particular bus stop by sending the bus stop code in a text.
The bus stop code may be displayed on the bus stop flag or in the timetable case. In Slough, the code will start with “slg”, for example, “slgdatg”.

To use the service, simply type the stop code as a text message in your mobile phone - and send it to 84268. The message you send will cost your normal text message charge and in most areas the reply will cost up to 25p.
You can also add the service number you want (leaving a space after the stop code) ... so your message might look like "slgdatg 71".

You will receive a message back, normally in less than a minute. Typically the message will show a clock time if the information comes from timetables (eg: 0935) but it will show an expected waiting time (eg: 5 mins) if it comes from a real-time information system.

Remember the service is specific to an individual stop for travel in that one direction... the code for the stop in the other direction will be different!
