So I decided to ring the company up to see if I could find out what the changes were going to be. They were extremey helpful and emailed me a copy of the timetable which starts 30th March. I am not impressed. On Wednesdays and Saturdays the route is changing and my village will no longer be served. I will have no service buses those days. This is quite ironic as the day I use that bus the most is.......yup, Wednesdays. I also quite often use it Saturday mornings to go to Sax shopping. Great. Thanks SCC. Another vote winner. DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO USE BUSES OR NOT!!!!!!! Btw I tried to book Suffolk Links to give me more time in Wickham Market today and they were fully booked. Suffice it to say I'm not taking this lying down and have already emailed SCC expressing my displeasure.
Onto other things and on my way to Wickham Market today by lucky chance my chariot was 69006 so I managed to get a pic in the roadworks ridden village of which more to come.

In other news in Notices and Proceedings yesterday it was revealed that Sanders are altering most of their services from 29th March. The majority are timetable amendments, but one entry did stand out, that being a new service extending the 44 from Sheringham to Holt, presumably in competition with Konect's service 2.

I am over the moon for BorderBus. The 146 is gradually gaining more and more passengers, and is proof that if a route is run reliably and correctly, with decent, friendly drivers it will take off, if not immediately. BorderBus have proved that give a route time and it can succeed. I'm convinced that had Andrew remained at Anglian the 164 between Saxmundham and Ipswich would have become a roaring success too. Andrew has promised to let me know more details of times and what the new vehicle will be nearer the date so watch this space.
