Halton Borough Council improves roadside bus stop publicity with Omnibus

10 April 2024 – Halton Borough Council is improving the customer experience with Omnibus timetable publicity solution, OmniSTOPdesign.

OmniSTOPdesign allows users to provide stop-specific displays at bus stops, providing passengers with access to real-time timetable information. The solution offers user-configurable templates, has an in-built database to store case information and simplifies output, reducing the time and expense of creating bespoke displays.

The unitary authority has also implemented the TransXChange Importer software to remove the need to enter data manually into its Omnibus timetabling solution (OmniTIMES).

Tony Barker, Network Development Officer at Halton Borough Council, said: “With OmniSTOPdesign we can create high quality roadside publicity in various styles, sizes and formats. The universal implementation of stop-specific QR codes at all bus stops has improved the customer experience and enabled passengers to more easily plan journeys.”


Nick Brookes, Software Director at EPM and Omnibus, said: “We are proud to extend our relationship with Halton Borough Council and deliver capabilities that will enhance efficiency, flexibility and data integrity.  Our publishing software has been developed to seamlessly import timetable data from third-party timetabling systems, not just OmniTIMES, ensuring we meet our customers’ individual requirements.”
