What now? Trembling with fear, fbb tried to examine the huge frame of detailed information at the stop.
Only the X27 was shown as serving St Margarets on its way to Loughborough. So fbb decided to wait for an X27. With no timetables displayed at all, and not even a departure list, what else could be done?
It would have been a very long wait from fbb's arrival at the stop at 1425 ...
... until the only X27s (actually X27Es) departed from there at 1720 and 1730. It was a schoolday, though.
An innocent fbb might well have now given up and set off to walk. Everything seemed to contrive to obfuscate and befuddle. Certainly the people who installed these misleading (and just plain wrong) notices have not the faintest idea how utterly useless their efforts have been. What is the use of putting up lots of detailed lists with no readable guide as to how frequent the services are?
Rather than walking, fbb decided to stop being innocent and go back to relying on his knowledge. Services 47 and 48 run every 15 minutes between St Margarets bus station and South Wigston, a suburb to the south of the City.
Arriva, you are missing out on revenue. Tell Plusbus to get it right, then put a huge notice on the stop: "Bus 47 to St Margarets" with departure times and see the £1 fares roll in.
Oh dear! Indeed!
