I agree with keep it simple , but it is hard to balance features such as fares , date specific searches , maps of stops etc and still keep it super simple. We will keep changing based on feedback.
Well done - that's exactly what I was suggesting!
When I say "keep it simple", I mean start with the very basic information.
When providing public transport timetables, the first port of call should ALWAYS be a printed full timetable for each service. I know from my own experience that I don't always get the same bus every day, and it's always handy to have a copy of the full timetable in my wallet so that I can see what my options are.
However, once that is available, journey planners and the other information (such as fares, maps etc.) are the next logical step. I think that once you have both options, people can choose which they want to use. Like everything, it'll take people a bit of getting used to, but with the option of printing the pdf timetable I think it'll work in the longer term.
I look forward to seeing the rest of the jjkavanagh group timetables in due course!
