Look how bored I was! I did a map of the 12 diversion!

Seeing as I’ve been looking for a decent excuse to use the new My Maps feature on Google, and the announced-at-quite-short-notice diversion of the 12 through Earlsdon due to the closure of Earlsdon Avenue North for gas main works provided a prime opportunity. My clearly very professionally produced map has got everything – colour coded lines, key points marked out and some babble too. Enjoy! Hope it’s vaguely helpful to at least one person :) You can even save it, print it off and keep it as a handy pocket guide if you so desire…

Unibus 06/07

Writing about web page

The new U1 timetable is now available from Stagecoach’s website, and, after some studying, there seems to be something of a drop in the level of service since last year.

The first thing seems to be that the core daytime service between Sydenham, Leamington and the University has dropped to operate every 15 minutes from every 12 minutes, plus the roughly hourly extra ‘short’ service between Leamington and the Uni. So, on the U1, there are now only 5 buses an hour between Uni and Leam (and only 4 to South Leam). However, there does seem to be a more intensive service before around 1100 (with 10 buses arriving at Uni 0900-1000 for example). Also, the Saturday service has dropped to every 30 minutes from every 20 minutes which I find surprising as the buses always seemed fairly well loaded on Saturdays, particularly with campus residents on shopping trips. Evening and Sunday services seem little, if at all, changed.

So, in summary:

Good Changes

More buses to Uni for morning lectures

Not-so good changes

Reduced Mon-Sat daytime service

Reading the blogs, there seems to have been some annoyance at morning buses passing stops full – so Stagecoach seem to be reacting to this by introducing extra journeys at peak times.

Oh well, at least I’ll be living in Earlsdon and avoiding all this – let’s just hope Travel Coventry don’t mess up the 12!
