Hi-tech timetables telling bus passengers exactly when their next service is will initially operate from more than 20 bus stops in the town, with the pilot scheme set to be rolled out across the county, including in Waveney's market towns.

Passengers will also be able to use a text messaging service to get the most up-to-date information and the timetables will indicate which services are wheelchair-friendly.

Suffolk County Council is behind the scheme and its portfolio holder for roads and transport, Guy McGregor, said the investment was part of an ongoing process to improve public transport.
