What a mess. The size, prominence and design of that homepage ad makes it look like the main feature of the website. It's highly confusing. Who the hell devotes 2/3 of their visible homepage screen estate to an irrelevant ad?
And since when do UK taxpayer-funded, government websites carry ads anyway?
I'll carry on using http://citymapper.com thanks.
I have adblock, and totally missed this. If adverts mean fewer tax pounds are being spent on the site, then I guess I'm for it.
Here's how I see it with ad blocker on. :O
oh that's why! haha I was wondering why's there a huge empty spot!
Yea! I was staring at the huge unused block of grey at the top and wondering why that section was blank, couldn't work it out!
Fail in the URL. :/
It's pretty cool - used it yesterday and was pleasantly surprised.
The bus animation whilst it searches for the journey is a nice touch!
