It seems churlish to criticise this excellent book but there are a few ways in which it could be made even better.
Confusing Service Presentation
A bit cumbersome! But what if fbb wanted to board an R1 or R2 at Iford and go beyond Castlepoit, to, say, Richmond Arms at Charminster.
It would be a struggle to work it all out. Yet when you look at the on-line timetables ...
Cartography, Sometimes Poor
The designers have tried to be too "clever".
But you really do need a bit more geography when you are peering out of a bus window and wondering whether you have reached Winton. The near geographical route by route maps available on-line but not in the timetable ...
Obviously with a book of this size, space is at a premium; perhaps the only answer is to produce a good geographically accurate map as a separate product?
But you cannot have everything in one book; it would be too large and cumbersome. So let us be thankful for what we have - an excellent, useful and well designed timetable book; the ultimate user friendly database that doesn't need a good wifi signal!
And it is FREE.
Three glorious and rousing cheers.
Tomorrow, another much improved booklet.
