Nationwide Bustracker bid

A LEADING transport lobby group has called for Edinburgh's Bustracker app to be rolled out nationwide.

The Campaign for Better Transport said the smartphone app, which gives real-time information, helped public transport offer the same kind of "seamless journeys" as cars.

Stephen Joseph, Campaign for Better Transport's chief executive, said: "The government has an unparalleled opportunity to turn the promise of seamless public transport journeys into a reality."
