That's the Way to Do It!
But travel (with fbb and chum, Alan) on Vectis route 12 via the picturesque "Stones" (Limerstone, Brighstone, Mottistone and Hulverstone) ...
There are, according to FYT, two routes A (coloured red on their map) and B (coloured blue).
But the big difference, the huge difference, between FYT and the main "community bus" scheme is that FYT is a real, unadulterated, community bus. Although funding has come from the County Council and local councils, some direct from government, the operation is entirely volunteer-run.
And each 14 seat bus has a driver and a "conductor" whose sole purpose is the assist the passengers on and off, with shopping and with advice.
That's what makes it special! It is local people serving local people. So tomorrow we look at a trip round the network as enjoyed by fbb and Alan. And enjoyed is the very word.
