NEL Bus & Rail Guide

Residents of North-East Lincolnshire unitary authority received the Council's Bus & Rail Guide 2007 through the post 2 weeks ago in their free paper. A full review will feature in the next LEYTR. Produced by FWT the map follows a similar design format as previous years except now each route has its own coloured line rather than the one-line-per-road with numbers alongside.

Martin Lear, Principal Transport Officer, contacted me asking for details of all errors contained within the map. I spend much of last week pouring over every single aspect of the map and worryingly came up with over 2 pages of errors. This sounds particularly bad but many of the faults concern grammatical errors rather than large faux pas. All this despite the map going to all operators in the area to check.

I've offered my services to check future editions before they go to press. The map itself though is the best to date and very impressive. Further copies can be obtained from:
