Oddly, First's "non-stop" journeys are timed for approximately 5 minutes longer that the Stagecoach trip with two stops.
Sensible, or not? Joint service, or not?
And talking of through journeys, First's timetable ...
Which leaves us with timetables from Traveline Cymru (i.e. Wales) ...
So, from Wednesday's blog (read again) we learned that, for timetable information ...
Stagecoach have got it nearly right
South Gloucestershire haven't quite grasped connections
Monmouthshire haven't grasped connections at all
Traveline South West is utterly useless
Bristol doesn't understand the route numbers ...
to which we may now add ...
Monmouthshire doesn't explain where the buses go (or don't go!)
First have got it nearly right
Traveline Cymru (Wales) is utterly useless
That means, perhaps, that the Bristol web-site timetable is the best at explaining what really happens, despite its incorrect route numbers? What do you think?
Our next "Pont Hafren" derived blog might help us all form a reasoned opinion. Or might not! But our eager readers will have to wait a while because other matters of note and import need our attention.
Watch out for "Never be Forced to Travel to Aust", coming soon to a blog near you.
