...morning was far from good.
Stoopid bus didn’t show up this morning. This has occurred on more than one occasion on this particular run of the route I take into town in the last few months (when I report these incidents, they would always tell me it was because of a breakdown…yeah right, and I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell them, cheap).
Ended up having to wait another twenty five minutes for the next bus which was ugly crowded as it had both its and the “no show” bus’s passenger load. Got off earlier than normal so I wouldn’t get trampled by everyone else getting off and took another bus up the mall to make my connection. Driver of that bus decided to take an unscheduled break a couple stops up the ave. sitting for five changes of the traffic light at the same intersection. By this time I was so disgusted got off and walked the rest of the way to where I catch my connecting bus. Needless to say I missed my connection, was almost late for work, and not in a very good mood.
...and evening wasn’t much better.
After making it back into town from where I work OK, the bus I connect with to get home (which is on the same line as the one that didn’t show up in the morning) was also a “no show”. Ended up standing around in downtown for an extra half hour and got home much later than I cared to.
Reported both incidents to their comment line. Will probably get the same “excuse” they have given me before.
Our transit system’s current “spin line” is “How We Roll”. They need to change that to “How We Make You Wait”.
I should get one day of free riding for what they put me through today.
