There are new network maps on-line ...
... correctly showing route 2.
The new terminus is also correctly shown.
fbb does know know when these actually appeared, but thy were in place yesterday at 0930.
But if you are a normal human being and seek a piece of paper (map or timetable) to have and to hold ...
fbb's Sheffield correspondents are beavering away trying to assemble a full set of leaflets and maps for fbb; how long will he have to wait?
Meanwhile bus investigator Roy has seen a Stagecoach bus in the new route 2 branding as shown very small on the panel above.
It is obviously "branded" and we may smile at the strapline "Sheffield 2 Barnsley" but it hardly shouts with a stand-out image. There is "stuff" on the rear end, too ...
... including a personal testimonial to the excellence of the new service.
Presumably Gemma and Albert had an appointment on Sunday 3rd as the bus was running around emblazoned with their effusive enthusiasm on Monday 4th? Do they travel regularly from the city centre to the Hospital? In which case First Bus 1a/3 and Stagecoach 1/88 would have provide 24 buses an hour Monday to Friday rather than the two of the 2?
fbb is not convinced!
... but still no route 2 leaflets at lunchtime yesterday. there might be some on the buses themselves. John sent this note yesterday evening:
This afternoon yielded Stagecoach timetable leaflets on an 88 bus for 57, 86 and 737 (normal "small" leaflets), but not 88. There may well be others around on Stagecoach buses.
But they are all at it! We are moving our exploration to Exeter tomorrow.
