This is the info about the ticket and is great value for the amount of area and numerous operators it works on

If have two versions, a light mode:

discovery map LLL.png

And a dark mode:
discovery map DDD.png

It shows only services the discovery ticket can be used on but can't show every service because it would ne cluttered. Not all town or once/twice a week services are shown but most are. Some school only services are shown if they are an extension to a route and obviously dotted line means its infrequent, either subjective to that route or its a couple times a day or less than five days a week.

Enjoy!!

I've just realised there's been some minor changes to the 59 and 13 in Maidstone since February but it doesn't seem worth reposting the map.
It would be great if locals could tell me about changes. Thanks

Down in the far bottom left there should be a D line to Stanhope and a dashed AD along most of the A and D which only runs in the evenings and early mornings. Good luck fitting that all in with the space available though.

Just above that, drawn very approximately in dotted blue is the G line to Godington, which also pops out the other side in Sevington where there's also not much space.

Finally there's 4 missing dashed lines, drawn approximately in red, for the 1/1A/1X. I've also attempted to correct the number labelling, which is quite difficult given that the entire route is 1/1A/1X with the exception of:
  • Charham Beech Avenue (1A)
  • The loop around Wye (1/1A)
  • Little Burton (1/1A)
  • Both routes to avoid Chartham Railway Station (1X)
In case you were wondering, if a bus calls at Chartham Beech Avenue (the tip of the spur at Chartham) then they are numbered 1A. If they don't, but they call at Wye Church (i.e. go around the loop at Wye) then they are numbered 1. If they call at neither, then they are numbered 1X. Doesn't matter where the bus is going to or from or the route taken, just whether either of those stops are called at.

Wow lots of detail there.
I purposely haven't included all town services because other the areas around would be pure colour and no space but 8 might be able to squeeze them in, or make an area around towns have thinner lines like I saw on a MetroBus bus map.

That would be a lot of reworking but I'll think I will actually do that.

With the 1's I'm trying to give an idea of what buses frequently do but I should add the extra labels and lines to be more consistent with the rest of the map.

Thanks!!

This is what I plan to do with all other city and towns, take a while to do but will definitely look good.

I still could't fit the AD in though.

Ooh, that's cool. 😃 Really shows how wiggly all the town routes are. 😛

This map is seriously messy. It represents routes well but once you stare at it, it starts to drive you insane.
ahhhhhhhh.png


Anyway, I have decided to just restart my map because of a couple reasons.
1. Too many circles, once I head towards nearing London on Surrey and Kent the amount of circles will be ridiculous.
2. If I start to show town routes I could do with a bit more space.
3. I can add more detail like roundabouts and more accurate town one way systems.

This is Whitstable and Herne Bay without and labeling and for the sea yet to cool down.
It looks great apart from you cab barely see the 660.

It's looking good and enjoying it very much.
Have yet to add the sea but the routes give a vague outline.

Open the image on a new tab and zoom in to like 500% for a good look.
