One is right outside the Tourist Information Office, as you can see.
Below this timetable is some helpful guidance on First Bus special offers ...
If we are prepared to sit and wait in eager anticipation, we shall eventually see (10 minutes late) the 1229 to Axminster.
But you can see the flag from the other side ...
... stop pole.
Of course, there isn't a map. Traveline's version is unhelpful as the blue route lines obliterate any useful road names and obscure destinations as well.
Next question; where does the 99/99A leave from? And where does the 30 to Taunton leave from?
Right next to the ill-equipped bus stop outside the ill-stocked TIC is an equally ill-adorned finger post. It guides the hapless visitor seeking solace in Chard to the toilets ...
The other bus stop, by the way, is opposite the toilets ...
Tomorrow we will look at Chard's "transport hub" in Boden Street; served by 99/99A buses in both directions, but by First Bus Buses of Somerset only towards Taunton. We have already, just about, discovered where we can catch the 30 to Axminster. You might ask how it is that Stagecoach manages to get 99s in both directions into Boden Street but First can't.
Perhaps there is a good reason?
As Aberdeen welcomes students back to the city this week, pubs, clubs and shops are stocking up for the inevitable extra demand. However, local supermarkets may not notice much of a demand for baked beans after bus operator First Aberdeen said it is giving away more than 2,000 First branded tins as part of its welcome for students to the Granite City.
At the University of Aberdeen's freshers fare First will give away more than 1,000 tins this week with a further 1,000 tins to be distributed at Robert Gordon University's (RGU) freshers fare later this month.
First Aberdeen's Marketing Assistant, Rachael Gordon, said: "Having just graduated from RGU in the Summer I know very well how important tins of baked beans are to students. They certainly seemed to dominate my diet during my four years as a student."
"Giving away baked beans we thought would be a great idea and help promote our student tickets which offer great value for money. We expect our heavily discounted £300 academic ticket (normal price is £350), which offers unlimited travel across our network from just over £1 a day, in particular to be really popular at freshers fares."
Ahem. You mean "Freshers' Fairs or perhaps Fayres". Write out 500 times; corrections to Mr Fearnley's office by 0900 Monday.
In case of letters from Aberdeen lawyers working for First, the picture at the head of this news snippet was NOT supplied by the Company press office. Sadly!
