Especially for Bert and Jane, here's an update on Bus Stop M at Bow Church.
Some digital fixing has been going on behind the scenes. I'll try to keep this simple.
Wrong on Wednesday: 1) List of departures at Bus Stop M fails to include route 25 [ALMOST FIXED]
If you use an app or the TfL website, or if you text '55457' to 87287, route 25 now appears on the list of departures. This means it is now possible to check when the next number 25 bus is due. However, route 25 does not yet appear in the list of routes serving stop M, which still reads '8 276 425 488 D8 N205'.
Wrong on Wednesday: 2) Location coordinates for Bus Stop M incorrect [FIXED]
Bus Stop M's digital location has been updated from where it used to be (down by the flyover) to where it is now (opposite the church). This means electronic timings from the stop now match reality. If Bus Stop M had a Countdown display (which it doesn't), this would now show a correct list of departures.
Wrong on Wednesday: 3) Timetables displayed at Bus Stop M not quite correct [NOT FIXED]
All paper timetables remain those which were on display when the bus stop was located a minute down the road. Timings (and route diagrams) have not been updated to match the new location. It's highly unlikely that any passenger has noticed, been inconvenienced or cares.
Wrong on Wednesday: 4) Mismatch between name displayed at stop and digital name [NOT FIXED]
The name on the bus stop is 'Bow Church', but the digital name is still 'Bow Flyover', which was the name of the old stop down the road.
Wrong on Wednesday: 5) Buses approaching Bus Stop M display an incorrect next stop. [IMPROVED, BUT NOT FIXED]
Until yesterday, buses on route 25 displayed a next stop of 'Warton Road' (1km down the road). From yesterday (as a result of '1'), buses on route 25 now display 'Bow Flyover', the same as all other buses. Unfortunately (because of '4') they should be should be displaying 'Bow Church'. So we're not there yet.
Mystery on Wednesday: 6) Bus Stop M displays a tile for route 205 [STILL A MYSTERY]
I haven't mentioned this before, and it's not really a problem because the tile says 'Alighting point only'. But why did somebody decide to add a tile for route 205 when route 205 doesn't terminate here, and never has?
