I won't put my list up as it will narrow down where I live significantly and I'd rather this forum didn't know, but it's only Ainsworth so far that has used the same routes as me...

EYMS 105 and 115 when I had a stint at The University of Hull Business School... (Hull University Business School, HUBS)

Commuted in from Bridlington, jumping ship at Cottingham Station and either bussing it into the uni of just hoofing it from there to the Uni (The old Humberside main building)

There's a reason I didn't give a full list in my own thread - it would be way too long. I will list the routes I have used under First S&A only, including withdrawn or re-numbered routes (marked with an asterisk); remember my first visit to Bath was in April 2009 and the second day of that visit aside I had never used a First S&A bus until September 2009. There are probably some routes not listed that should be as shown well.

Bath City:

1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8*, 10, 12, 13, 14, 14A, 17, 18, 21, 31, 41, 418*, 419*, SPA1, SPA2*

Bath Country:

173, 178, 179, 184, 231, 232, 234, 264, 265, 267, 271, 272, 318, 319, 332, 337, 339, 649, X39

Bristol City:

1, 6, 7, 8, 9, 36, 40, 40A, 41, 43, 54, 70, 73, 73B, 75, 76, 90

Bristol Country:

327, 342, 349, 351*, 352, 353, 376, X1, X14, X27

Other:

7 (WsM), 21 (Taunton), 29 (Taunton), 112 (WsM), 161 (Wells), X25 (WsM)

I think that's everything :lol: Not bad for 31½ months!

Oh Jees, probably every single NXWM previously TWM/WMT route in Wolverhampton at some point plus many others in and around the area, and most routes in Lincoln too - I could be here all day listing them.

Stagecoach Newcastle:
1, 18, 62/63

Don't use the bus much at all when I'm in Newcastle, just the Metro

Blackpool Transport:
1, 2/2C, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11, 14, 15, 16

Don't use the bus when I can help it in Blackpool either, prefer to use the tram wherever possible
