There are no names or numbers to help us. As one of fbb's colleagues opined, "you can understand the leaflet route diagram if you compare it with a good street map and a list of the stop names." Or, to put it another way, the map in the Travel South Yorkshire [TSY] leaflet is completely useless; unless, of course, you already know where the buses go!
And a useful leaflet might highlight other services that may offer useful connectional facilities. Two stops beyond the Malin Bridge tag is the interchange with Supertam. Surrely it would be more helpful to have the label at "Malin Bridge Tram Stop"?
But our investigations must now take us to the south west of the city.
The "Greystones" is a splendid pub located at, surpisingly, Greystones (in Sheffield).
IT : Erm ... we haven't printed new maps yet.
DG : Will they be ready for the start of the new pattern of service?
FB : I don't know, I only run the buses.
IT : I don't know, I manage the database.
IK : I don't know, I'm only a management trainee.
What do our blog readers think?
Some conclusions (and a proposal) tomorrow.
P.S. Both the new 81 and the new 82 are shown as running via "Greystones" in the stops list. No sane member of the Sheffield public would agree with that. The revised routes run via Hunters Bar and Banner Cross to Ecclesall. What about other services that use Ecclesall Road between Hunters Bar, Banner Cross and Ecclesall? Do they stop at "Greystones"
Clear as mud.
