Bus travel made simple for passengers in Ipswich

Friday 18 February 2022

Ipswich Buses has launched a brand-new website - which makes the planning and taking of bus trips in Ipswich and surrounding areas easier than ever before.

Built and developed in partnership with industry tech firm Rise Digital Media, the mobile-friendly website provides users with simple and instant access to the very latest service information, timetables, live bus tracking (arrival and departure times), journey planning tools, news and more.

Speaking about the new and improved website, Steve Bryce (pic), General Manager at Ipswich Buses, said:

“We recognise that our customers need instant access to accurate and up-to-date service information, and our new and improved website gives them this at the touch of a button.

“We are delighted to have worked with our partners at Rise Digital Media during the production and launch of the new website. In addition to providing quick and easy access to timetables, ticket and fares information, the site’s live vehicle tracking page provides users with the exact locations of their buses along individual routes on an interactive map. This handy new feature will not only help passengers plan their bus trips, it means they can also better manage their time waiting at bus stops.”

Mr Bryce added:

“We are already looking at options for further improving our digital service, and I look forward to updating  our passengers in due course.”

Chris Nice, Operations Director at Rise Digital Media added: “We are delighted to have worked with the team at Ipswich Buses during the production and launch of their new website and live vehicle tracking facility. Our suite of bespoke products and services to the bus and coach industry have been designed to make bus travel the simple and easy choice for passengers, and to provide operators with a better understanding and reporting on services.

“We look forward to working closely with Ipswich Buses as they look to build on their digital offering to passengers.”
