Yet another shut down of options for travellers by bus and coach. For a number of services now the clarion call is "you can do it online" which I wouldn't (would not) want to rely on. Another way of cutting spending they don't (do not) have to provide office space or employ the helpful staff who used to work here and act as a human contact between travellers and the information they need. If you arrive in an unfamiliar town or city you want readily available information on what to do or where to go. This malaise is affecting TICs Tourist Information Centres as well. The words that come to mind are "price of everything and value of nothing". Time photo taken 11.24 am GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).
