It’s a joke
The public transport system is far from dependable.
My husband and I thought we’d take the bus to the city. Living in Herne Bay, this should have been easy enough and uncomplicated.
Getting there went okay. We checked the return bus times at Britomart so we could be there at the appropriate time. According to the electronic bus schedule the arrival time was 10 minutes, then nine then eight then seven, etc. Then it said “Due”. No bus came.
The next scheduled bus was due in another 20 miniutes or so.
How can a person trust the system enough to depend on it to get to work? And in bad weather who wants to wait for a bus that may not come.
And there’s no savings – not time nor money. It’s cheaper and faster to bite the fuel cost and waste time trying to find a carpark. You’d still arrive faster and for less money.
Public transport is a joke. Car pooling is the closest thing to trying to save fuel and arrive at your destination on time.
