Timetable information is something that differs widely from operator to operator or local authority to local authority. Some choose to install expensive 'next bus'-style departure screens, while some opt for displaying the route's full timetable at each stop. Some choose to provide a timetable library in huge display cases at major stops/interchanges. Derbyshire choose to provide a list of departures, naturally in chronological order, using the basic Gill Sans Bold font, on yellow A4 paper that has been cut to size, depending on how many departures there are.
Cheap, simplistic yet incredibly effective, as I hope you can see from the photo below:
The stop is in Buxton and lists all Sunday/Bank Holiday departures. No fancy logos, no multitude of colour, no laminate reflecting the sun, just plain, simple text that those who can't fathom a timetable must surely concede is pretty straightforward.
There are a couple of restrictions: journey times, for example, are not shown, nor is the operator providing each service named. In my opinion, though, the simplicity of the timetable display, with clear, precise departure times (with ultimate destination and significant via points detailed as appropriate) far outweigh the trade-offs.
And for any operator or local authority to reproduce - they'd only need Microsoft Excel, some yellow A4 paper and a laser-jet printer. This is certainly all I need from a timetable display at a bus stop. If I need to get to Disley, for example, the duration will matter not one jot, nor will the operator providing the service. I've got to get there!
Striking the balance, Derbyshire do offer full timetables for all services calling at its major stops/bus stations/interchanges, in addition to the Buses From This Stop list. All bases covered. Long may they continue to provide such an excellent service in all areas of public transport.
