Announcements buses in Bremerhaven
The announcements consist of "Nächste Haltestelle" ("next stop:") followed by the name of the respective stop.
The announcement is played after the bus has made about 2/3 of the way to the next stop. In the summer of 2007, older buses were finally fitted with the new announcement system.
So the days of having three different voices doing the announcements in Bremerhaven's buses are finally over.
Special information in the announcements:
Only the actual names of the stops are announced. No information about connecting services or places
of interest is included in the announcements as long as they're not part of the station name anyway.
No extra information is added at the last stop of the line.
The announcements are usually loud enough to be audible even over the noise of the engine.
However, at times the bad state of many roads in Bremerhaven make it difficult to hear the announcements.
Examples - Announcements from line 502 (Leherheide West - Grünhöfe):

The recordings on this site are meant to demonstrate how each individual transit company uses their announcements. All recordings were made by me in regularly scheduled services. Commercial use and publication of the recordinds is not permitted.
