Countdown Signs

We sometimes have to temporarily remove the Countdown Signs so that we can repair or upgrade shelters.

Depending on the complexity of the work, it can take some time before we put the sign back. Until then, please use this site or text us to get live bus arrival information.

Buses, signals and road crossings

This report is a worldwide study into the interaction of buses and signals at road crossings and has been produced for the International Association of Public Transport (UITP).

Phase 1 of the work, led by TfL, has involved a worldwide review of the topic, identification of lessons learnt from different cities and applications and developing recommendations for further work.

The main focus of the study has been on bus priority at traffic signals.

This report explains how prioritising buses at traffic signals improves their punctuality:
