Recently, I visited the San Francisco Bay Area. My friend Andrea, who lives in Berkeley, pointed out the inconvenience of transit timetables that separate all the scheduled departures by line. If there are multiple lines that travel to some of the same locations, the passenger just wants to look up ALL of the next opportunities to catch a bus, not just those for one particular line (to see an example of why you’d want to look up information this way, look at Lines 52L and 51 around the Downtown Berkeley BART in the AC Transit system map). Andrea says that in Germany, information posted at a stop lists all arrival/departure times in order, with the line shown in the next column.
Can anyone help me find examples of German timetables?
