Stagecoach Changes

Writing about web page http://www.centro.org.uk/wwwroot/MediaCentre/18-02-2007.htm

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!

Travel Coventry Fare Increase

Writing about web page http://www.travelcoventry.co.uk/cards/cashfares.asp

I’ve just noticed that some of Travel Coventry’s fares have gone up. So, for a single journey over 3 fare stages, it’s now the completely not irritating amount of £1.25 (short journeys are now £1). Thank goodness I’ve got a pass, otherwise I think I’d lose my mind finiding that every time I want to get on the bus! Interestingly (and I suppose conveniently too), Daysavers are unchanged at £2.50, so if you’re doing two journeys (e.g. there and back), you’re just as well buying one of these (and you only have to fumble for a nice amount once rather than an annoying amount twice!). Plus you can then use it again afterwards.

On a semi-related matter, has anyone else noticed Travel Coventry bus smell? Next time you’re on one, sniff, and you’ll realise what I mean. No other bus company smells like TC!
