Nottingham – A quality bus service

On a recent trip to Nottingham I had the opportunity to sample their bus service and rode the 58 from Daybrook into the City and back.

The modern double deckers of Nottingham City Transport (95% Nottingham City Council owned – 5% Transdev company) were well used and had both visual and audible notifications of each stop along the route. Here is the upper deck screen on the 58:-

What’s more every bus stop that I saw had an illuminated real time display showing when buses were due. I understand that 1,500 bus stops now have such a display.

Oh for such high standards on Arriva routes through Sefton Borough.
