But if that is the pre-Covid levels of service, at least its fresh air being supported by government funding!How on earth does the corridor justify that type of frequency? 4 buses an hour on Arriva bus 300, and 3 an hour on Redline bus 130, surely these buses are just carrying fresh air?
I guess the operators must think so or they’d likely have been unable to sustain two commercial routes for so long? I think the Redline 130 was previously numbered 321 and was “marketed” for its more direct routing to the south, albeit by current timetabling only a few minutes in it really. Arriva used to run an X30 between the towns too, but I’m not sure what route that took. I guess it was similar to the Redline 130.
