Without having checked the amended timetable, the bus leaves Green Lane at XX:04 and currently is timed at Poynton Church at XX:15 leaving 15 mins to complete the journey to Argyle St for its return journey at XX:34 to arrive Green Lane in time for the XX:04 service.
How on earth can someone sat behind a desk decide that the bus can run quicker in off peak than in peak times??????
Has he/she ever driven through Poynton??????
And what time do they depart the Church in Peak Times if they still leave the terminus at the same time?????

My experience of using the P1 earlier in the year was that it was rarely on time, and usually anything between 5 and 20 minutes late. On one particularly bad occasion the driver still felt he had to have a break of nearly 10 minutes at Green Lane. By this time the bus was nearly 30 minutes late. Until the bypass is built and the pressure on the roundels is relieved, it will be impossible to run a round trip in 60 minutes except at the quietest times. By that time the P1 may be a distant memory.

On a number of occasions when running very late the P1 has run from Higher Poynton to Hazel Grove with a 'Sorry No Service' displayed on the bus.

Simply traveling the route and not picking up passengers to gain time. It has passed me and other intended passengers all agreed with management we are told.

There are people who rely on this bus late or not.
