End of the line for full Yellow Buses timetable
5:00pm Monday 11th March 2013 in News
YELLOW Buses has announced that is has called time on printing copies of its full timetable.
The information will instead be available in dedicated booklets for individual services, and online.
The specially-tailored booklets will provide all the times, plus maps, details about where to board, and diagrams of the network.
The company said the information in the full timetable was out of date so quickly it was having to print more and more additional booklets to keep up.
Yellow Buses’ head of marketing, Jenni Wilkinson, said: “It was a difficult decision to make because our timetable has been printed for many decades, and we know some people will be disappointed and so have looked at increasing the ways we can make the information available.
“Unfortunately the cost of printing and the fact it was so quickly out of date meant it was best to change the way we provide our passengers with information.
“Each service will have its own booklet that will contain all the times as well as other information that we know passengers want.
“The way that our passengers access information has been changing and the printed timetable isn’t always the simplest way to get the information.”
