Adventures in Public Transport, Part IX
Posted by at 8.05pm | No responses | Uncategorised

Today I used the bus to visit a couple of friends. Normally, even on a Sunday, I can have my pick of 6 buses an hour, or a fairly fast, frequent train serice. Today being Boxing Day however, there were no trains running and only two buses per hour. Every bus a single decker, and all of them packed full.

I was fortunate and managed to get on board, but at every stop more people piled on, until eventually the driver had to turn away passengers, who presumably had to wait half an hour for another bus which would probably be just as full.

This is, of course, one of those days when the powers that be tell us there’s “no demand” for public transport. :-/
