If that is the case then it does seem Lothian are taking a far more extreme approach compared to pretty much every other operator.If u search the individual timetables on the city services for next week some services appear withdrawn like the 10 and other are severely curtailed. I'm sure the 29 was every hour but don't quote me on that.
No it wouldn't. Stagecoach are basically running a Sunday service with extra morning runs and routes that dont operate on Sundays still operate to roughly a Saturday timetable. These Lothian timetables are poorer than a sunday level service.It would bring them into line with Stagecoach Scotland.
Yes, there's no reason for demand to vary a lot between days of the week. Nobody should be travelling unless absolutely essential so the need for each service won't change much. Some people's journeys will be dictated by opening hours for food shops or pharmacies but that's about it. Factories should be working shifts to maximise social distancing.They seem to be running the same service seven days a week.
I'm a little suprised about the 35, 200 and 300 being suspended. I thought maybe hourly for those. But 44 not going to Wallyford and short running to Leith Street is a tad suprising.Emergency timetable for Lothian City services now released: https://www.lothianbuses.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/200329-Emergency-timetables-LB.pdf
Service 35: Suspended
Service 44: Balerno to Leith Street every 30 mins
Service 200: Suspended
Service 300: Suspended
There's no demand, if there was there would be more services. Stagecoach won't be far behind now..No it wouldn't. Stagecoach are basically running a Sunday service with extra morning runs and routes that dont operate on Sundays still operate to roughly a Saturday timetable. These Lothian timetables are poorer than a sunday level service.
And the 106! Didn’t notice that the 106/113 will run in co-ordination till closer look at the timetables!44 east section covered by 106/113 (113 will go via Macbeth Moir I believe)
Surprised mostly at the 200, though with the 400 not going to the airport and and cutting at the gyle i can imagine they are only running the 100 out there. The 300 i can sort of get as they are many sections of the route covered by other services, and the 21 does its job linking Drum Brae to leith I guess.I'm a little suprised about the 35, 200 and 300 being suspended. I thought maybe hourly for those. But 44 not going to Wallyford and short running to Leith Street is a tad suprising.
