London Gets New WAP Travel Service
Posted: 17-Feb-2001 [Source:]

[Getting info on public transportation in London possible via your WAP-enabled phone.]

by John Lewell, London -- "Developed by Transport for London (TfL) in partnership with information provider Kizoom, the real-time travel information service will cover Tube, bus, Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and Thames River services.

"Ken Livingstone, London's first elected mayor, said the new service would make getting around London much more predictable. He claimed that it would make "journeys easier, more comfortable and less stressful."

"Now Londoners and commuters can get up-to-the-minute travel information on Tube, bus, DLR and Thames River services anywhere and at any time, simply and at the touch of a button," said Livingstone.

"But will the service tell you exactly when the next bus will arrive? Unfortunately not. Nor will it translate TfL minutes (such as are shown on indicator boards in stations for Train 1, Train 2, etc.) into actual minutes as used by everyone else.
