BUSES: Timetable needs revision

Among many Amble residents, I expect, I was pleased to hear that we would have two buses each hour linking us to Ashington and Newcastle.

Imagine my dismay when on checking the new timetable I realised that our second bus was timed between three and seven minutes different to the first.

What were the planners of this timetable thinking? Were they perhaps looking a few months into the future, when they could say, “we gave you another bus, but you didn’t use it enough so we are not able to keep it running?”.

Am I being cynical? I hope not, but surely it isn’t impossible to have our buses 30 minutes apart.
