We all know the convention of electronic bus information displays; although fbb suspects that the majority of screen peerers don't. If it shows (e.g) 12 min it is showing the actually time when the bus will arrive.

There is an unconfirmed report that the PTE did not produce this leaflet. (Phew, thank goodness. Or fbb would have to offer praise and gratitude.)

Not recommended OFFICIALLY at Northampton Railway Station.
