"You shouldn't wait for more than two hours after the first available service (to any destination) has left"
This makes post #26982 and 26983 invalid.

We take the 0822 Cross Country service to Hinckley arriving at 0857 on Saturday morning.
We exit the station and walk the .4 miles (10 minutes) to the Crescent Bus Station, where we board the 0914 Arriva Midlands service 158 to Leicester Forest East (Braunstone Crossroads), arriving at 0946 on Saturday morning.

Oh right. That doesn’t count then.
Sadly not. To be fair, the 8/8A/9/9A operated by National Express Coventry serve the railway station and as it was over an hour we could have caught the bus in between.

We change stands and wait for the 1755 Stagecoach Warwickshire service U12 to Warwick University (Kirby Corner Interchange), arriving at 1819 on Saturday evening.
We next board the 1835 National Express Coventry service 12X to Green Lane (Fletchamstead Highway), arriving there at 1842 on Saturday evening.

Not much else around here, so we hop straight back on the bus* for the 20:40 National Express Coventry service 3A to Coventry (Sports Centre), arriving for 20:59 on Saturday evening.

*Think it's reasonable to assume it's the same bus in this case, with the 1 minute layover at the exact same bus stop.

Not much else around here, and it looks as if the same bus forms the return journey, so we return on the 2235 National Express Coventry service 23 to Binley (Kynner Way), arriving there at 2315 on Saturday evening.
