It starts today, TaDa!
And on the "launch" bus.
Wait for it ...
These were spotted in Rotherham last Wesdnesday and in Sheffield on Friday but may well have been available longer. And how is First Bus publicising this superior new service.
Answer : with a very small leaflet - A7 size, about this size:-.
Timetable scans supplied by Sheffield correspondent John.
We know that the buses are "quality", (X78 quality!) and will eventually have wifi; but what about the promised quality stop "equipment". The press release shows a shelter.
Has it got seats?
Is there a real time display?
Does it provide adequate shelter?
Hmm. Out in the sticks, however, things are not quite so ready.
Our correspondent David's report; "Not worth 29.8 million ponds - no way!"
Another Sheffield contrbutor, Roy, sent these at 2030 last night. So some stops are "finished". These shots were taken at Castle Street in Sheffield City centre.
Frankly, it is wrong to berate First Bus for the deficiencies of this service. "The Lads" at Rotherham HQ have no doubt done the best job they could with a poor product, poorly conceived.
