When is the next bus to the city centre, I asked myself.
In my home town, Gothenburg, the internet service for time tables is really convenient for planning the journey and for choosing the fastest routs. I find the on-line real time information at the bus stops even more useful. The next bus is displayed and the real time to wait is displayed. Whenever my express bus from Kungälv is delayed, I can with some efforts take a detour and reach the my work with some 10 minutes delay, rather than the 30 minutes that would have been the consequence without the detour.
I find the real time internet service particularly useful in the winter, when I can avoid waiting in a snow storm, by checking the potential delay before leaving the office.
Nowadays I don’t need to speculate, the real time system tells me when the next bus appears.
