Title: Bedford Town Route 6
Post by: PeterJW on April 18, 2018, 06:17:43 PM
This is a 12 min frequency service through the day. On Wed 11 Apr there was a gap of circa 40 mins on departures from the Bus Station around 13 hrs. On Wed 18 Apr there was a gap around 45 mins on return services from Brickhill circa 15 hrs. Does anybody know (Colin?) what the problem is?

In reply to the comments that Peter makes, the problem stems from the fact that the vehicles that operate the No 6 route to Brickhill also operate the No 5 to Elms Farm. Therefore, if a bus on the No 5 is delayed incoming to the Town Centre then it will run late when it operates the No 6. This is also the case vice versa.
