It gets even sillier later on in the day, when, astoundingly, the service is shown as terminating at Brize Norton roundabout,
which isn't at Brize Norton and it's over three miles from Carterton. Lots of people might want to get off here, surely? Yes, you are right, it IS in the middle of nowhere.
fbb would really recommend a journey which involves waiting for 30 minutes at a roundabout in the middle of nowhere. Especially in the dark. And when it's pouring with rain. And freezing cold. Remember, in reality, there is a through bus every 30 minutes every evening.
To answer fbb's questions from Episode 2 (read again),
1. Direct service S1 IS there but the data has been input in such a potty way that it can NEVER give correct results.
2. Typical traveline tyros and technicians don't actually know (or even care) where the buses go. Just shove in raw data and everything is hunky-dory.
3. We spend £50 million on Traveline and another £50 million on Transport Defunct because ... answers please to:-
Why not write and explain about Carterton to them? They won't understand, poor things; something about not living in the real world.
