REVISED BUS TIMETABLE - ONE
Following a mid-term review of the
trial bus service, a revised timetable was introduced on 22 May 2013 and has
now been in operation for just over a month.
by Joshua’s Taxis, the trial bus service replaces the previous A, B and C
routes and the Rupert’s run. The introduction of the revised timetable has seen
new routes and times, including an additional late night departure from Donny’s
at the weekend and a quicker home-to-duty journey between Longwood and
Jamestown. The removal of the least used journeys has also brought a more
efficient and convenient service for the majority of users.
with Jeffrey Joshua, who manages Joshua’s Taxi Services he said:
public have received the trial service and the revised timetable very
positively. We haven’t had any complaints so far and numbers have also picked
up, especially with the current school holidays. Overall I would say everything
is going well to enable this system to become a permanent fixture in the
of the trial service and revised timetable to date has resulted in the
discontinuation of less frequently used routes, such as the cross country and
the Rupert’s routes.
service will be extended until the end of August 2013 to enable the effects of
the revised timetable to be fully monitored and assessed. This will ensure that
when a permanent service is introduced, it provides the best possible service
for its passengers.
