On-line, search for services 35 and 69 on the Travel South Yorkshire web site and there was no mention that either of these routes is changing ...
In the "news" section an "easier" fare structure is revealed ...
Faced with this underwhelming volume of helpful literature in Sheffield, it is worth examining in more detail what is proposed for Bristol.
The new "Clifton Circular" 8 will be increased to every 10 minutes.
Ironically, when fbb delved back into his last set of xephos data for Bristol the Cotham/Redland side of the loop was every 20 minutes and the Clifton bit every 10.
But not quite as "around" as it used to.
One bonus point for the new timetable leaflet is that it shows the service 72 journeys on the 9 side.
But back to Sheffield. It would be really good for the bus passengers of the great Steel City if the information for their September changes were even approaching the quality of that in Bristol.
But is most definitely isn't.
fbb is battling with his brain and his local northern knowledge to complete the picture. Suffice it to say that the 69 to X1 transmogrification is reasonably straightforward BUT ...

We'll take a breather over the weekend and return to Tinsley on Monday. By then various emails to correspondents and to First Bus might have answered several currently unanswerable questions.
Or they might not!
