A pity that they are still not serving Old Warden, a village that seems to be neglected by both commercial and community bus operators (including the Ivel Sprinter). Community buses were originally conceived as filling gaps in the mainstream network but it doesn't look as if they're doing that very well. I'd also like to serve the Shuttleworth complex (saving the walk from Ickwell one has to do as thing stand) and to have a service along the road between Old Warden and Cardington -- the W1 could do either, though not both without a detour.
