Bus Stop Information Displays

Passengers can find bus stop timetable displays at over 1121 bus stops in Cheshire East. Where possible we try to update the bus stop displays the day before a service change; although this can be a few days either side on occasion. Each display has a date at the top to show when it was last updated.
