  1. That is a very stupid excuse to not do things right. Two buses at same time once an hour is no solution for social distancing. One will be full next one five minutes later empty. My neighbour works for NHS and it takes her more than three times as long to get to and from work by bus now.
  2. If it has little personal info it is usually possible to find the owner on Facebook and contact them asap. Then make further arrangements. If the phone was in the bag as well contact their partner or good close friend.
  3. I have heard a GP in southey green has been closed because of a suspected infection and a barber shop in Rotherham because an infected customer was there. We all knew this was more a matter of time that it would be here.
  4. It was very busy at the moor yesterday afternoon but I have completely stopped using the new market while I did use the old market for many years. Now I walk right past it even when I am on the moor. Was at tj hughes only ten days ago and it did look a bit funny then with all the huge big sales signs all over the shop.
  5. Moor is not well connected to supertram. Parking ain't great. It connects with southern part of Sheffield but some buses don't come near it. Corona virus and cinema? James bond movie is delayed six months for example. And mission impossible stopped filming Sorry to hear tj Hughes is gone it was a nice important shop for the moor
  6. I live in the present moment, not the past. As I mentioned sweet lies are used. All political, social systems function through saying that the past was worse. Then they put the carrot stick of a better future in front of the less intelligent miserable majority who immediately go that direction. This is an ongoing process and unless you look at things, right here, right now, this moment you will not see or understand that buses are getting worse in a certain way today. I must admit that few improvements have been made using modern technology spacing buses better but I get the impression this same technology is also used to get them too full and overloaded at the wrong times even on weekends. Buses in England are also used to separate the social classes and the buses serving higher classed areas will be newer and run better than the lower class areas despite the fact that fewer people will use buses from higher class areas.
  7. Luxembourg is very small and has highest car ownership to citicens in EU. They are trying hard to get people to use more public transport but even when free most people continue driving there. The trains are still national there tax funded. It is the other extreme of what we have here where private companies drive up the price using false lies and excuses.
  8. Good question. I think I know what the real answer is. Only thing is that after traveling in India cannot be bothered with discussing the real impact of class system in transportation any longer. I also see a certain preference of serving certain areas better than others. Busdriver1 would make a better politician than busdriver. Why do I say this? He (or she) explains everything very sweet using it all as an excuse to say it's ok to make things worse. I don't use sweet excuses and simply watch the reality of a system that gets worse and worse to pump as much money as possible in a few individuals pockets. Of coarse we have to take the environment in consideration as well but closing Rotherham depot was not to help the environment.
  9. Today I waited for a bus where it is supposed to come approximately every five minutes at one clock in afternoon. After twenty minutes waiting there came a dubbeldecker that was so full that even upstairs people were standing. I got out and took the next one that came ten minutes later. Looking on their website at expected arrivals it looked more like fourteen buses were coming instead of the scheduled twenty.
  10. I have heard too many stories like this first thinks it's a joke. Try small claims court and get it on front pages of newspapers instead of HS2
  11. If people didn't have consessionary passes many would not take bus at all and drive and bus companies get even less.
  12. Just now again on a line that is supposed to be every twelve minutes. App says next bus in 21 minutes. 31 minutes later it gets there and goes slower than ever because at all stops there are too many people who have waited too long taking forever to get on this overload bus. Any more people worried about buses not making profit who want to comment on this?
  13. In other words thumbs up but we don't have that on this forum. I would give Lex a thumbs up as well. Will keep using the library, many things change with technology does this mean libraries are going while things like HS2 are coming?
  14. Water levels of don were much higher than usual yesterday. It is raining hard again and lots more rain coming. Still there are no flood warnings or concerns in the area.
  15. Yes it did but a taxi would have been better. Today my mobile told me bus would be there in five minutes. After twelve minutes waiting for a ghost bus a friend passed and gave me a ride.
