The Largs and Millport Tourist Information office is, apparently, more helpful with ...
Of the 576 Sunday evening service and the late-nite 578 there is no mention.
So back to that collection of panels snapped by fbb and blogged-upon yesterday. (read again) fbb has spent some considerable time in unravelling the "Truth" which is "Out There".
The 901, 906 and 908 don't just run between Largs and Greenock; they run between Largs and Glasgow!
Because of the DaFT "advised" split of the service, there is no apparent difference between a 901 and a 908 and, indeed, they are identical between Largs and Greenock. But the 908 runs via the Braehead shopping centre ...

The out of date area area leaflets have gone. GOOD.
They are joined by newcomers 319 a-plenty GOOD.
Non-First bus 312s appear GOOD
Does anyone know what should be there? Does anyone care?
