Current status:

  • The Newmarket Road Outer sensor seems to have been working much more reliably since 14 August.

Thank for reporting this. It's the result of a bug in our bus timetable parsing (the published timetables use a nightmarish representation for 'exceptional days' operation that we've never entirely got to the bottom of). I'll remind everyone of th...
