Hmm, some interesting changes to the U1/X17 from 18th February shown on the above page as follows:
-U1 Journeys running via Kenilworth are renumbered U2.
-Monday to Saturday Evening U1 journeys curtailed to run between the University and Sydenham only (i.e. no longer serving Coventry). Replaced by extra X17 evening journeys.
-Certain X17 journeys extended to serve the University.
Now for my opinion!
I’m happy to see the numerical differentaition between Kenilworth/A46 journeys has been restored (lost when the X14 became the X12) as I’ve always thought that using the same number for two completely different routes was daft and bound to lead to confusion (as no doubt it has done!). I’m guessing that the X17s extended to the University are the new evening ones, thus continuing to provide a Stagecoach evening service via Kenilworth Road to Coventry, although I may be wrong. So, as I see it, there’s not going to be any lost links, with less confusion. So, in short, I’m happy for a change!
