Hopefully the big bludners on the cover will be corrected before it goes to print.
But the big problem with the 88 is with the timetable itself, a problem highlighted by a comment writes a couple of days ago. All the titles and headings say the buses run to Bents Green.
Monstrously stupid and unhelpful to the public. fbb has been pointing this out to Stagecoach and the PTE for five years but neither cares a jot, apparently.
But congrats (mostly) for not using non repeating repeat patterns and a bit of a raspberry for using repeat patterns where they are not necessary. But a big squelchy raspberry for not telling your customers that the bus to Bents Green actually goes to Bents Green.
Some information providers DO understand!
And So Back To Newbury
Who runs the buses in Newbury? Back in the days pf Noah they were run by Newbury and District ...
But Reading has returned in its own right, branded ...
Route 1 is missing (the opposition, of course**) as is route 7. And it is to the strange timetable for route 7 that we will turn tomorrow.
And before the comment writers descend on fbb like a tonne of engine parts, please accept his profuse apologies for any deficiencies in his summary of bus services in Newbury. It is only intended to be a series of inadequate snapshots to illustrate how changeable things have been in this sleepy but very pleasant little town.
Pass the tranquilisers, Mrs fbb!
