Views Wanted on New York Bus Timetables
6:08pm 24th October 2013
From today bus users along the Hull Road to Dunnington route in York will notice new-look bus timetables have been installed as part of a two month trial.
City of York Council has installed the new timetables at 42 stops along the number 10 route as part of a city wide makeover to improve bus services and waiting facilities in and around the city.
New timetables will provide a much more accessible format for bus users, which are currently provided by both the council and individual operators in a variety of different designs, shapes and sizes.
Funded through part of the £3.5 million government Better Bus Area Fund awarded to City of York Council last year, it is intended that following the trial any necessary improvements can be made, and that the timetables will then be rolled out city wide to the whole network during December/January.
Cllr Dave Merrett, Cabinet Member for Transport, Planning and Sustainability, said: “This is all about making it easier for people to use bus services and have access to good and simple-to-use information.”
The roll out will include every bus stop in the York area receiving a new timetable cases, which will use a single consistent design showing all departures from the stop in time order.
Feedback is welcomed on the new designs, which can be submitted at www.itravelyork.info/feedback by selecting New Bus Timetables.
