Bus stop timetables often seemed to be changed at least a few days in advance, not just in Nexus land either, Durham County Council have made a start on updating timetables ahead of contract changes from Sunday as well, noticed a timetable in Newton Aycliffe this afternoon that now has service 879 down as being operated by Hodgsons.

I spoke to soon about nexus being quick off the mark with the new bus stop time tables.grainger st Newcastle still showing the old 27 route timetable without the new route 26. There were quite a few confused passengers looking for new bus times, so when 26 pulled in you could see the panic and confusion .some were thinking the driver had put in 26 instead of 27, even after the new times were on the web site, loads people did not know the buses changed today.

Speaking of outdated timetables, Durham County Council's interactive timetable and map site: http://www.cartogold.co.uk/durhamPT/download-tts.html has a few timetables for services which have since been withdrawn including:

JSB Travel's evening journeys on Arriva service 6.

Cumbria Classic Coaches service 572 shows a summer timetable when it's currently on a winter timetable.

Scarlet Band X49 & S2 were withdrawn.

Also this oldie in Heighington today, this service was withdrawn getting on for nearly 3 years ago now.

Still don't really understand the new Go North East approach to printed timetables - the continued production of timetables for services with major changes indicates that there is a recognition that there is still a need/value in producing printed leaflets. But then that logic falls flat when leaflets aren't available for other services, which have had minor changes and therefore 'old' timetables withdrawn, without replacement. Why, for example is there a need for a printed timetable for the 9 but not the 8?

I picked up the new 26/27 timetables on the bus yesterday,which I was surprised about,I did not think they were going to print any.

Just noticed in the last week that in Northumberland many bus stop timetables have been taken down and replaced with a poster showing a QR code to scan for the latest times. Im guessing that this is to save them changing the timetable every time service changes occur however I think that this will provide a significant disadvantage to many people. Im not sure if this is just Northumberland Council or a Nexus decision. 

I could not get a photo myself as my bus was coming however I found this one posted to the Arriva North East facebook page.

I can only assume that's an idea from someone who last used a bus when they were in school. Clearly the OAPs of Northumberland aren't about to whip out their iPhone to check where the bus is.

Atrocius.
OAP's, those who aren't tech savvy and many others totally disregarded by this example.

Travelling by public transport needs to be made accessible to all and go way above and beyond easy access vehicles.
Organisations need to think about the process from well before people get to the bus stop, the time at the stop, on board and when the passenger gets off.
This is a perfect example of that failing. Just as the removal of paper timetables, the removal of via points etc etc.

Strange how we seemingly can no longer have timetables on bus stops but you can go on Nexus' website and can download a PDF of the times for the bus stop in question  Huh

As this matter has been widely discussed in the GNE threads... Arriva Midlands are set to follow in Go North East's footsteps by scrapping paper timetables: https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/news/...um=twitter
