Well, this new timetable is working very well! Buses on the 32 are more often than not 13 or 14 minutes late throughout the day. The poor drivers are either resigned to it, or stressing, as demonstrated by the frustration of one who lost his cool in traffic, swearing twice, and nothing mild either - using the f and c words!

I went on the X50 the other day and both ways that was late too.

Thought it best to post publicly the response from First Bus about the number 34 no longer stopping at Tesco in Warndon, because we have received so many inquiries about it...

“This is a consequence of Worcestershire County Councils unwillingness to enforce bus priority restrictions and provide a predictable journey time through the Lowesmoor area I’m afraid.

Route 34 is allowed 40 minutes to complete a round trip from Crowngate to Warndon and back. With two buses we can provide a 20 minute frequency.

That 40 minute journey time is becoming increasingly unpredictable. To rightly continue to provide an adequate level of punctuality we must save some time somewhere.

On an average day we carried 55 passengers to or from Tesco or roughly two per trip. By removing the route from Tesco we save three minutes – three minutes that are critical to maintaining a 40 minute round trip time. An alternative stop is close by.

Should the County do something to assist the situation we’ll be delighted to reconsider our decision.”

We are pleased to announce that there will be no changes to the 363, even though the poster from First Bus says that "service changes are to be confirmed".

However, they still have not confirmed any changes to the 420. We will let you know as soon as we hear anything from the service provider. 👍
