The installation of electronic timetables at bus-stops in Oxford city centre is delayed because of software failure of so-called real-time satellite-operated bus schedules. Two bus-stops on the Banbury road in Oxford (on route to Kidlington) and in Speedwell street in the centre have already been fitted with the real-time boards and were meant to be up and running earlier this year but trial runs have shown the system to be unreliable.

Last year, Oxford county council embarked on a 900,000 project in collaboration with the citys two major bus companies, Stagecoach and the Oxford bus company, to provide these so-called real time bus timetables which shows how long the next bus is to arrive.
