Don't worry, I live on the route most days, many people round The Myvod still call it the 311 and 313!

I live on the route too, down in Tipton. I'm usually alone at my stop, but I do get asked when the 311 or 313 is due still in Dudley.

I live down by The Myvod in Wednesbury. My stop is usually quiet but you get the biddies moaning about the 313 (they still like to call it) being late and saying the 311 isn't better either.

...

Please stop it. NX run a service number 13 there, not 313
By your logic the Diamond bus should have been 404 and 6735 was running the 951

Sorry. But there's hardly a difference. Just a 3 put on to 13. I prefer to call the 11/13 by their original number, not some silly shortened number. I told off for calling places by a inappropriate nickname. TBH it's easy to know what number the 5, 11, 13 were originally. I will call them by how I like, but you seem to moan at me by how I call them, sorry.

Would you rather me call most routes by their original number as you'll just moan even more.

So why in the previous post did you not refer to a 401, 319, 329, 410 etc?
If you want, to me the 313 is a route through to Stourbridge, which it isn't now
The bus you catch is a 13 now, deal with it

Exactly why should I have to rename every route by its original number? I only call the routes by its original number as I prefer to call it by them. I don't call every route by its original number as I would be confusing way too many people.

Sorry if I'm confusing anyone.

It hasn't been for ages. Don't forget the 311A and 313A which don't run anymore. No it's the 311/313 to me and it will always be.

It's not about confusion, it's about fact.
You did not catch an NX 313 on any of these trips because it doesn't exist

If that doesn't exist then what does? The silly 13, which is just the 313 without a 3? It's easy to know what route number it is. Just take out the 3 and you know what route it is.
Same with the 11 just take out the 3. This is stupid.

The only thing stupid here is you referring to routes by their old number.

Times have changed, routes have changed, and route numbers have changed. Unless you're actually travelling back through time while you're out on your travels.

Everybody else has gotten used to the new route numbers, and nobody is getting confused. If you seriously think people are getting confused between the 5 from West Bromwich to Sutton Coldfield and the 5 from Birmingham to Solihull, then refer to it as the 5 (WB), rather than the 451, which hasn't run for several years now.
