You told us you want:
Buses to be on time, reliable, frequent and take a direct route
Drivers to look smart and give excellent customer service
An enhanced feeling of personal safety, space and comfort
and extensively refurbished buses.
They are fitted with more comfortable leather seats, with high backs,
deeper cushions and more space; in some areas of the buses
we’ve used the space normally taken by four seats
to have three, more spacious places to sit
But there is an information problem. Very few buses continue round the loop to the aforementioned Glen Road Ashtree Road. The 1720 is one example but fbb was hoping for something an hour earlier.
Thanks all concerned for Sapphire quality.
fbb needed to look at the inbound timetable to estimate his arrival at Sainsburys.
Sapphire quality rules OK!
And while the PR gurus at Arriva are contemplating the best way to arrange a change at The Grange, maybe they should also think about the "terminus", enigmatically called "The Blues".
The Co-op has announced plans to convert a former pub into a convenience store, creating 20 jobs. The Blues, in Uplands Road, Oadby, closed six months ago. It is set to reopen as a shop in the autumn. The shop will be open seven days a week and will be able to sell alcohol between 7am and 10pm.
... it doesn't exist! Problem No 2 with this location ...
The buses don't "terminate" there - they wait for their departure time elsewhere on the estate; well, fbb's did!
