A TfL spokesperson said: "We're sorry that customers are unable to use
our Countdown screens at bus stops for live travel information.
This is a result of a nationwide O2 data outage. We are working with our
service provider to resolve this as soon as possible."
ps Actually, it's more likely that O2 working with *its* provider
[Ericsson] will get this thing resolved.
I don't think that TfL regards the Countdown displays on bus stops as a
high priority system. In fact, I didn't think it was being rolled out any
further, and may have a limited life. TfL would rather passengers used
their phones to get the data.
