An information investigation into Stevenage bus station.
So these over-engineered names get sucked in and spat out in all their "glory"; complication breeds confusion.
One note for one SB15 Journey (e.g. on schooldays only runs as far as the hospital) and NO notes for one 80 journey are all that is needed. But the computer insists on unnecessary information overkill, yet again.
fbb has also experimented with shorter tidier stop names ...
And one final niggle. Recent re-numberings have re-created the SB (Stevenage Bus / Super Bus) network. But, mysteriously, service 10 from Stevenage Stevenage bus station to Stevenage Old Town (in Stevenage) is still just plain "10". Maybe some SB forgot to change it!
The whole problem, in Hertfordshire as elsewhere, is a reliance on mindless technological gubbins with an over-engineered comprehensive database to the detriment of information that is both useful and comprehensible to the "average" passenger.
But then, Public Transport would be much easier to manage if it weren't for the perennial problem of pesky passengers.
