Traveline-text is a new service which provides details of the next three or four departure times for any specific bus stop, by texting the stop's unique 7 or 8 letter code to 84268.  This service is now available in Thaxted. 

To use the service, simply type the bus stop code as a text in your mobile phone, and send it to 84268.  You will receive a message back, normally within a minute, with details of the next three departures from that stop.  Remember the service is specific to an individual stop for travel in that one direction. So be aware that the code for the stop in the other direction will be different!

In most areas, the cost of the service is 25p, plus your normal text messaging charge.  The return message is free.
