Todwick (near Rotherham) has a shop ...
... showing only the evening 29As to Todwick; no mention of the daytime link to 74. And the 74 leaflet map makes no reference to its link with the 29. Just plain unhelpful.
The colour network map tries ...
... but implies that there are three services on Kiveton Lane when there is only one bus each hour in both directions.
First Bus on-line tables are just as bad, Their version of the 29 does, at least, show times for Todwick on the 29 rather than just the PTE's note but, again, not a sausage on the 74 table. To add to the possible confusion, the 29 is shown on the same table as the revised 27 - messier again! As First is not involved in the evening 29A variant, surely showing the whole caboodle as a through service, as per the fbb paste-up above, would make the best sense of a poor product?
To complete the picture, fbb has added to the map the long-gone historic 215 and the current "main line" X5 which doesn't serve Todwick. Back in the good old days the main route from Sheffield to Dinnington was the 206/219. It ran just once an hour plus peak extras.
The modern X5, by contrast, runs every 20 minutes Monday to Friday, every 30 on Saturdays, has a faster route into the city and is thus 10 minutes quicker.
**27 leaflet. This was the service withdrawn in July; fbb received a copy yesterday afternoon - too late for yesterday's blog.
