This App displays real time arrival information for the bus network in West Sussex. It primarily covers the buses in and around the Worthing, Shoreham-by-Sea and Crawley area. The real-time arrival data is provided by West Sussex Council:

The arrival information is generally available during the daytime when the bus network is operating.

Favourites - Displays a list of your favourite bus stops. Tap a favourite to obtain the most current real-time arrival data for that bus stop. You can delete a favourite with a long-tap.

Finder - If you know the bus line you are interested in, use this screen to find bus stops. Search by bus line / route direction / bus stop. Click the button "Add to Favourites" to add the bus stop to your favourite list.

Map - Use this screen to find the bus stops nearest to you. Be sure to turn on GPS (or at least WiFi) to obtain an accurate location fix. Your estimated location is marked with an Android icon. Tap on a bus stop (marked by a red pin) to see which bus lines visit that bus stop. Tap a bus line to enter this stop in your favourites. Flip from Favourites or Finder screen back to Map view in order to refresh the display of nearby bus stops.

Settings - Untick "Map Centered on Location" if you wish to browse other areas of the map. You can also select how many nearby bus stops to display (default is 10). Also control the location refresh interval (default minimum is 15 seconds).

This App is provided free of charge and was written in my spare time. It is released with the Apache 2.0 license. Send me an email if you encounter problems or have suggestions and I'll do my best to resolve them.

Recently changed in this version

Version 1.08 alphabetically sorts bus-stops in the Favourites view. You can control this in the Settings menu. This update also increases the brightness of the departures text to help readability outdoors. A great update!

Version 1.07 fixes a bug where bus stops were referenced in the database by name, rather than by a unique ID. This new version resolves this problem so now it is possible to add both directions of a bus stop to your favourites.

    Thanks for this great app - certainly works just fine for buses in Crawley. I quickly added all of my most used bus stops as favourites and the real time updates are invaluable! One thing - could you add the ability to sort favourites alphabetically?

    Having downloaded and found little for Crawley, I contacted Ian, the App creator who quickly added access to the Metrobus routes covering the Crawley area. Very satisfied!
