Darwin buses are a winner
IF our experience using the bus service from Cullen Bay is to go by, us Darwinites are on a winner.
Invited to attend a dinner up town on a Saturday evening, we decided to catch the bus. We arrived early at the bus stop located just up the hill in Marina Blvd.
As we waited for the bus, it came down the hill heading for the Ferry Terminal. As the bus passed, the female bus driver gave us a smile and a wave!
When she came back, as we entered the bus she noticed our age and asked if we had our seniors cards with us.
We did and we not only got a free ride, but also with the friendliest driver! She asked where we were going in order to tell us where to get off and gave a lot of local information. What a friendly person and the perfect Territorian.
This is what we are about – no wonder tourists like visiting the NT.

■ If they choose to damage our economy and lifestyle by these closures WE THE WIDER COMMUNITY need to send a strong message in return to all entities and communities associated with the decision. Gunna needs to urgently grow some and take immediate punitive financial and services action against the lot of them if he wants to give any impression at all of knowing what leadership means. Largesse is A TWO-WAY STREET. Some with parasite mentality need to be taught this NOW!!! Alan ■ It is amazing that this will have taken more than ten years to fix. Traditional owners have showed remarkable patience, while governments have stuffed around. John
