An interactive screen, which is the first of its kind in the country, has been unveiled in Weston-super-Mare.
The iPoint has been launched in Regent Street.
Users will be able to buy bus tickets, top up smart cards and plan a journey by public transport.
They can also browse news and events by using the touch screen system.
The two screens provide live information on bus and rail departures via a Twitter feed.
The iPoint was launched by North Somerset Council, along with Crosville Motor Services and First West of England.
North Somerset has been shortlisted for a National Transport Award as a result of its bus smartcards and development of the iPoint.
