Changed bus times

Local bus times have changed. the following information is taken from the Wymetro web site.
590/592. A revised timetable will be introduced. Weekday and Saturday frequency between Halifax and Todmorden will be every 15 minutes. Journeys will run through between Halifax and Burnley / Rochdale and will no longer require a change of bus in Todmorden.
594/595/596/901. A revised timetable will be introduced to improve connection times with trains.
Some background: First cut their 590/592 service from 6 to 5 per hour as a temporary measure in 2017 "to improve the service" while flood defence works were impacting Mytholmroyd. (See Hebweb "592 bus services" link.) Now we get 4 per hour.
And as we have 8 trains per hour scheduled to stop at Hebden Bridge, why do the local bus times have to change? Again.
These times also changed last year when the train timetable changed. Which train are they aiming for?
