The timetable is simpler on Monday to Saturday daytimes than it might at first appear. Buses run every 15 minutes from Heartsease to Lodge Farm (23 and 23A) and, likewise, every 15 minutes from Thorpe St Andrew to Queens Hills (24 and 24A). The 24 and 24A routes do not run in the evening or on Sundays when a 23B hourly variant from Heartsease provides a service to Queens Hills. The whole package looks reasonable, except for the good folk of "greater" Thorpe St Andrew who might have hoped to gain some Sunday and evening buses.
In any majot re-jig, there are bound to be losers; complaints are already being voiced locally because the previous 24 and 24A routes ran through to the main Hospital site. From 23rd, Hospital visitors will need to change buses in the City centre.
