"120" and "tram" available
But look more closely at the points served from 30th. The "new" 53A no longer runs between Sheffield and Mansfield. For a through journey you first catch a tram, or service 120 bus, to Halfway Tram terminus, where there is "easy cross-platform interchange". Incidentally, these comments refer to the Sunday timetable.
How to ruin a bus service; too right buddy!
Never mind, there's plenty of room on the roads for lots more cars.
P.S. O.K., only a right loony or fbb (the two can be interchangeable) might WANT to travel through from Sheffield to Mansfield this way; the more rational might try a change at Chesterfield (X17 to Pronto); but that's not much better in the evenings and on Sundays. There will be many passengers who have to change, and thus pay extra for the privilege of a less convenient and more tedious journey.
