The Tracker

Post by DD12 » 15:13 Tuesday 15th September 2020

Currently, the tracker is now showing the off-service journeys, and some times along these routes -- usually with the next intended service displayed ( - on the tracker).

I find that this adds a lot of interest, - especially for my interest in the way double-deckers are being used --

for example, - this week one is being inter-worked on the S5 and 144, and has just come from the Bromsgrove area, and down the M5 , ready to do the S5 again !

-- it should also help a keen enthusiast to construct a current "bus graph", but I won't try as this damned pandemic looks likely to cause more changes yet !!

Another example highlighted by the tracker is this use of 33405 --

after arriving at the Sixth Form College on the S23, it went via the A4440 Southern Link Road to Malvern to input onto the 44.

I'm a big fan of this kind of planning -- utilising vehicles after schools to input onto public services, -- supporting the timetabled frequency, - especially when the other vehicles on that route may well be bunched-up in Worcester's traffic jams ( - tidal flows into Worcester in the AM rush hour, and out of Worcester in the PM rush hour).
