For which, many thanks.  I have a few more questions about that route (I'll
contact you privately), because it's

Actually, what the bus does is entirely intuitive.  What isn't intuitive is
why they planned the route that
way in the first place.  :)

It's strange that you should mention hail and ride.  Once it gets out of
the town centre, that route does indeed
operate as hail and ride.  I'm not sure if that is officially condoned by
the county council or the bus operator,
but that's what the drivers do.  But you're right about not conflicting
because the segments marked as
reverse also have to be traversed in a forward direction so a passenger
could board or alight on that segment
