fbb is not convinced that speed will sell the revised service! The map makes this all a little clearer (click on the graphic for an enlarged view)
The buses offer the now usual Wifi but do not, as yet, appear to be branded for X2.
Whilst the outbound stop is a fair step past any visible station ...
Yet again, a lack of consistency; giving the opportunity for customer confusion.
The stop names may be a digest of the dreaded NaPTAN database but no Sheffield person would EVER tell an enquirer that the X2 ran "via Firth Park". Using technical geography it might, but using common sense it simply does not.
Despite these niggles, the X2 is an interesting and useful development of a traditional service. With a little tweaking it could be a lot better, publicity wise - and, as ever, time will tell if it attracts more passengers. After all that's why Stagecoach have changed it!
