Rapid Feedback Response

Thank you for the feedback we have made some changes to the form to make it quicker and easier to fill out, including the removal of almost all the must complete fields. We would very much welcome further feedback on this new service....

Its good to see Citybus responding quickly to feedback on their new personal planner service. If you go the planner page you now see the same form but with a lot less red asterisks denoting fields you have to complete. Now you only need to enter name, postcode and email address as a minimum.
I did try the service and received back a friendly email giving me the details I asked for. Nice and prompt on Monday morning.
It is a basic service but its a useful one and the personal touch will be a welcome feature for many passengers who don't like wading through timetables. I have more to say on this but time has run out for now...
