Mutterings About The Map!
Of course not, because real genuine passengers know nothing about the service thanks to a dearth of meaningful publicity.
The whole thing is a bit of a botched job!
The stop on Rockingham Street is too far from the shops ...
Of course, a genius like fbb could solve ALL these problems "at a stroke", with no desire for a lavish consultation fee.
Just turn left rather than right at the Town Hall ...GREEN)
Even if it offends Council bigotry, putting the service that way is what the passengers want, it is what the bus company wants and it is what the Pinstone Street traders want. But then this is democracy, innit?
Even better, put all the buses back and you don't have to waste resources on the expensive-to-run Sheffield Connect!
And while you are at it, Councillors, take a look at the timetable.
What planet are the schedulers on?
It would be a challenge to keep to time if the roads were empty, if there were no other buses waiting to get on the stops and no passengers wanted to board or alight; but otherwise fbb reckons EIGHT minutes would be a wise running time.
Four minutes might just be workable (on a quiet day) if the bus ran via Pinstone Street???
No problem; the buses are far from busy!
And Finally ...
Presumably the temporary bus stops do not have departure lists in the frames because they do not exist on the "confuser", so the PTE's contractors are unable to update them!
John does, however, confirm that there is very little likelihood of anyone paying the £1 fare. Maybe a Tesco receipt or a car park ticket would do if your bus ticket has blown away in a Sheffield breeze.
Or perhaps print your own?
P.S. Apologies for delayed posting yesterday morning. fbb forgot to press the "go, go, go" button before beddybyes the previous evening.
