An innovative app that allows Powys bus users instant access to live bus travel information will be launched by the county council at the Royal Welsh Show.

The council, the largest in Wales and covering a quarter of Wales, has teamed up with North Wales based Geosho Ltd who have developed Geotra, an innovative web system to create accurate timetables, manage travel services and publish Apps.

The free app, which is available on iPhone and Andriod platforms, provides passengers with live bus locations, live service information and dynamic journey planning.  

Cabinet Member for Highways, Councillor John Brunt said: “Geotra is a complete timetable, journey management and publication system for organisations looking to increase passenger numbers. Users are empowered and engaged via their smartphones and that can only be good news for public transport.”

The travel app will be launched at the county council’s Twr Brycheiniog building adjacent to the main show ring on Wednesday where visitors can see the app in action with a live demonstration.
