  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. If people didn't have consessionary passes many would not take bus at all and drive and bus companies get even less.
  10. 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?
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. To be honest it was Monday morning 10 AM and digital mobile technology told me the bus was coming.
  15. Oh, why was I in city center at a taxi stand with zero taxis to run to a get bus to get to an important meeting two weeks ago?
  16. There are more buses than taxis on the road. Bus passengers are treated like lower class less worthy money sources for big companies when it comes to things like good service.
  17. I am reading a book from the library at the moment that would cost £10 as an ebook. After reading this book someone else can enjoy it thanks for the library.
  18. We called a taxi last week and there were none in the area it took them a while to find a driver. I looked on their app fivteen minutes later and they had send three drivers to that area to solve that problem. Filling gaps is not difficult.
  19. Here we go again. London road 75 into town normal afternoon fully packed as if there is some bus shortage. Absolutely rediculous. If they don't make money out of that I will have to see the actual figures and will not accept stupid comments aimed to calm it down.
  20. You are right. When one of these once a hour busses falls out of service they should get one from a busy line to come and sit in to fill that gap as soon as possible. A 75 or 76 that is at end of its line near the dore area for example. When a bus falls out of service where there are five or six a hour that is nowhere near as bad as someone waiting for nothing for a hour. Personally I would have called a taxi before playing roulette waiting for a bus one hour.
  21. If council give me 25% of what is pulled in I be more than happy to go around for them to fine silly parked people.
  22. Thanks, no surprise. This HS2 thing sounds just like trumps wall to me.
  23. We can afford the fares but take coach sometimes because it can be so much cheaper it gets rediculous. HS2 is politics. An effort to keep the pound stable by pretending there is development happening.
  24. Similar action has cleared old castle area from all sorts of jungle parking. Simple efficient cheap. Future cars need GPS tracking so parking fine automatically comes from account when parked at wrong place.
  25. Hello bus driver again. Just one question, you know what brainwashing is and how it works? The reason I ask is because sometimes your responses sound more like a repeating grammaphone record than honest answers. Please take that with a sense of humour. Understanding comes through looking and seeing consciously with awareness. Many people here can see the loopholes used by greedy management.
