Then there was "SuperBus" ...
At least it's not as bad as South Yorkshire where the Monday to Friday, Saturday and Sunday times are all mixed up. That is classic!
Are there lots of bus passengers who simply forget where they are and have to be reminded that they are "here" at Stevenage bus station? They might, of course be at Milton Keynes, or Hertford or Aberdeen or perhaps on the moon.
Why Stevenage Stevenage Railway Station? Why Corey's Mill Corey's Mill Sainsburys. Are Stevenage Stevenage bus travellers so daft that you have to repeat everything, so daft that you have to repeat everything?
Just off the timetable extract (above) is Corey's Mill Lister Hospital; presumably this distinguishes it from all the other Lister Hospitals in Stevenage.
Do I really want to know that the SB15 circular service stops "adj" to Scarborough Avenue shops? There is no other stop at that point, ALL buses to Symonds Green follow the same one-way loop.
And there's more; but that can wait for part two. Meanwhile, enjoy a "good old days" pic of a gaudy yellow and blue Superbus jostling for space at Stevenage Stevenage bus station bus station with a "proper" distinguished London Country green bus. Nice!
PART TWO scheduled for Monday May 9th.
next blog : due definitely on Friday May 6th
