Konectbus November timetable analysis

The 6A is reduced to just one journey in each direction daily
As I did with the revised Anglianbus November timetables, I have recently sunk my teeth into the new Konectbus timetables to analyse what the principle changes are.

Obviously affected most of all is the 2 and 2A, which has no timetable at all from November 2nd. Passengers are advised to use Sanders services 44A and X44 between Norwich and Sheringham, and 44 to Holt. Service 16 between Dereham and Wymondham is withdrawn in its entirety.

Next most affected is the 6A and X6 between Norwich and Attleborough. On the current timetable, the X6 and 6A run alternately every 30 minutes from 08:30 through to 17:30 Monday to Saturday. On the new timetable, there are two return 6A journeys (Departing Great Ellingham at 06:40 rather than 06:33 and departing Norwich back to Attleborough, for continuation to Great Ellingham and Watton at 19:10). The X6 too is cut drastically, with just four journeys per day in each direction on a two hourly frequency. The Sunday timetable, introduced in May this year, is cut entirely. One X6 in each direction daily will terminate and begin at Castle Meadow.

On the 52, the 18:10 Norwich to Blofield journey is revised to operate five minutes later at 18:15. The service 72 extending to Great Yarmouth is retained.

The 5 and 53 have been merged and operate similarly to currently
The 5 and 53 are merged, and takes the latter's service number. The timetable towards Wroxham is based on the current 5 timetable, departing at 10 and 40 minutes past the hour respectively. Rather than operating five minute later at 15 and 45 from 15:15, the new timetable sees buses depart at the same times each hour with the exception of the final departure running 5 minute later. From Queen's Hills, the service will now operate via Grapes Hill and Chapelfield Road to serve St Stephens Street, whilst returning buses will continue to operate from Castle Meadow to Theatre Street. At the Wroxham end, the timetable too continues to see buses departing at the same times as currently, with some changes of no more than 5 minutes. The Sunday timetable is identical to the current 53 service, however, there is no extension to give Queen's Hills and Dereham Road and Sunday option. Service to Tuckswood and Hoveton Medical Centre is withdrawn.
