I've been heading into Norwich two days a week for a while now and using the Park & Ride after the Anglia Coaches 588 let me down one too many times. I find there's a significant difference between the satellite car parks of Thickthorn and Harford the journey makes on your impression of Norwich. If you go to Thickthorn, which for me is 4 miles further away than Harford, your bus goes into town on a dual carriageway past the great Victorian houses of the Newmarket Road. The Harford bus winds way around council estates and grim retail sheds. It seems to take longer to get to the bus station because of it. I think there's a potential narrative in this.
