Bus time tables

Hi there is more of a or a than a complaint!!

Does anyone know why the bus timetables change in December??? Does something happen, does everyone all of sudden change what they are doing of a Tuesday 15th December that means that they need the perfectly adequate bus time to change??

Knowing how organised this country is I am just looking for a reason!

Don't worry everything will not fall apart. For most people they won't even notice a change. Its just the time of year when the timetable is tweaked to try to fit in extra commuter trains if necessary or put in additional routes. I have never noticed any large change on any of the routes I travel after the change.

Just check your route on www.sbb.ch to make sure that there is nothing different for you and go about your life as normal.

Bus and train timetables need updating from time to time in every country in the world.

Switzerland just has the decency to do it only twice a year (where necessary), with plenty of advance notice.

I think it's a splendid system, and beats anything Midland Red ever managed to offer ("Where's my bus? Oh, it doesn't exist anymore... guess I'll have to walk to Lichfield, then... should only take me three hours...")

Re: Bus time tables

I think it will just be a normal update - certainly the UK also changed timetables twice a year

just something I had taken for granted.

Maybe I never realised that bus time tables were updated coz they never arrived on time anyway and if the bus was cancelled I just presumed I either missed it or it was late!! And they never bothered updating the bus timetables on the stops anyway, and the times were always from the terminus, not the stop I was at so were only a loose indication of when I might expect to get a bus.
Now that I know the time they get here it made me pause for thought!! We don't have many buses and they all go to the station, so maybe it's to coincide with the trains!
Thanks all, makes sense.

Oh I love the transport system. It's a revelation knowing you don't have to bust yourself running for a bus because you know whether you have missed it or not! WONDERFUL!
