Fault knocks out bus information system
THE Oxontime system, which provides real-time departure information at bus stops and online for buses in Oxford and selected routes around the county, has been out of action due to a telecom fault since yesterday.
A key part of the communications network operated by a contractor for the county council and the bus companies has failed.
Computer engineers are trying to solve the problem but were not able to give an estimated time for resumption of normal service.
The system was transferred to a new contractor on March 30.
A county council spokesman said: “The temporary disruption to the Oxontime service is due to a BT line fault – the matter is in the hands of our software provider, who has assured us that the issue will be resolved as soon as is possible.”
