13 : 23 : X2 : X3 : X13 - Fun With Numbers (3)
You will remember (how could you possibly forget?) that the January changes in Oxford brought an X3 to John Radcliffe Hospital H instead of an X13.
At night (X3 NGT) the X3 runs via the Northway estate ...
... because the 13 doesn't run at NGT whilst at other times the X3 nips "direct" to the Hospital (X3 DAY).
Northway Estate is Halliday Hill.
Logically, and sensibly for Joseph Public and his chums, the X3 should always run via Northway and the 13 should go direct. That way it would be the same number all day at Northway. Presumably the scheduling computer won't allow it - or maybe nobody thought of it.
There is also a "Mystery at Barton" which sounds like an episode of "Poirot".
But why only one journey a week will get you there remains a true challenge for Bartonians "leedle grey cells". Mind you, the bus stop "round the back" doesn't look too much like a well equipped terminus, either.you need to click on the map for a readable enlargement)
Why are bus companies so utterly useless at showing loops? If all buses stop at Underhill Circus, there should be a time point there on ALL journeys. Ideally there should be a time at the end of the loop as well. But that may be asking too much.
So, in order for fbb to help Go Ahead Oxford Bus fulfil its aims and ideals ...
For the record the X3 loops a smaller loop that route 8 ...
