Hi!

Does anyone know the origin of the invisible bus stop on Grove lane, just around the corner from the leisure centre?

I discovered it because other people kept getting on there in the mornings, and there's a bus-stop going the other way opposite, but I live in eternal paranoia that one day the bus won't stop there and the driver will just look at me as if I'm a complete moron!

30p cheaper to get to GX from there rather than from the actual bus stop round the corner on Nicol Road...

Cheers!

Hi,  If you look Google maps there are a couple of little blue bus icons on Grove Lane just around the corner from the Leisure Centre just past Leachcroft.

I think you're safe to wait there as looks to be a legitimate stop :)

Is the bus stop that is there an "and opposite" one? They sometimes have something such like, or have arrows, on them that indicate it.

Thanks! I'll have a look for the "and opposite" thing. Had never heard of it before but that would make sense!

TThatiis a bus stop. My in laws use it as it's easier than walking over to the one by the leisure centre.
Weekends are a bit like rainbows. They look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them.

It definitely is- any idea why there isn't any bus stop sign though?

Just realised I never did check out the "and opposite" thing. Could still be that!
