Default Bus Timetables

I used to be able to download timetables exactly as they appear in the
case on the bus stop pole - the times for a week summarised in a format
such that the whole thing would fit on one side of an A4 page and could
conveniently be folded and carried. Is this still possible? All I can
find on the tfl website is "journey planners" and a list down one edge
of the page giving all the times for one day only, which would probably
need two or three pages to print, most of which would be white space.

I don't want my journey planned for me; I want to see all that is
available, and make up my own mind.

That ship sailed long ago for almost all public transport.

Airlines were the first to make timetables virtually unobtainable (maybe
25 years ago), rather than asking you when you might want to travel, and
then suggesting some flights they'd prefer you took.

That comes in the class of "virtually unobtainable". Which is different
from "completely unobtainable". There are also timetables for the tube,
but they don't make them very accessible. At least the latter come from
TfL, rather than what appears to be an enthusiastic amateur.

Those sorts of local-authority published timetables can be somewhat
patchy. The Surrey one looks much better than average. I wonder when the
County last published a timetable booklet?

run into Surrey
