I've got a few days on the island coming up in May and have hired a car for half of my stay, and will be taking the Electric Railway and the Steam Railway on the other 2 days, but buses are proving a little more difficult to figure out
I'll be dropping off the car at Ronaldsway and need to get back to my hotel on Mona Drive in Douglas. I've figured out I need to take either the 1 or the 11, but will both of these buses stop at all stops on the prom? The timetables state they'll stop at Queens Prom, Crescent Hotel and then Derby Castle, MER Station. I have no idea where the Crescent Hotel is in Douglas, but there's a stop at the bottom of Mona Dr that would be handy. So is the timetable only showing major stops, and the bus will stop - on request, presumably - or will I have a bit of a walk ahead of me?
I'll also probably need a bus from my hotel to the station for the Steam Train. Again the bus stop opposite the end of Mona Dr. on the prom isn't mentioned nor the one at the railway station, but even then, it also looks like no bus goes along the prom AND goes up by the station. Is that possible? It looks that the only buses that go along the prom terminate at the bus station?
I think I'm just confused by the maps on the gov.im site, so I need a bit of explanation.
