Little Chapel disappears from bus timetable

CALLS have been made to return one of Guernsey’s best-known tourist attractions to the island’s bus timetable.
The Little Chapel does not appear on the timetable of the 71 route, either in paper form or online.
Martyn Guille, who owns the neighbouring clockmakers, said the popular landmark is pinpointed on the network map, but visitors have been left ‘baffled’ when the tourist attraction then disappears completely from the corresponding route times.
He said further confusion has been caused by operator CT Plus failing to remove outdated timetables next to the Little Chapel, dating from May 2012 and including incorrect routes and information.
The new route number appears at the bus stop in St Andrew’s, but there are no times available on the sign.
Mr Guille, who runs the Martyn Guille Silversmiths and Fine Jewellers and Guernsey Clockmakers, said he hoped changes would be made with the introduction of the new winter timetable to bring an end to the confusion.
‘The Little Chapel is probably the biggest tourist attraction in Guernsey and yet it is not listed on the timetable itself,’ he said.
A CT Plus spokesman said they would include the feedback in their
consultation. ‘We would like to thank them for taking their time to give us this type of feedback,’ he said. ‘This is very useful.’
CT Plus also encouraged all other islanders and businesses to have their say.
