Katy’s on the buses

By johnboy - 4 January 2012 27

It must be that time of year. Chief Minister Gallagher appears to be spending the day tweeting about her bus journeys.

Apparently all the bus drivers are lovely.

What’s Your opinion?

I bet her driver didn’t speed down Adelaide Ave like they normally do.

This must be a huge problem, given buses are electronically speed limited to 85kph. Maybe stop cruising in the right hand lane doing 70 and you won’t have such a problem.

I really have trouble believing people when they say this. I see them on the Parkway almost every morning doing well over 85 – they seem to manage to keep up with the traffic doing 100. :\

Clearly, either ACTION buses can defeat their speed-limiters, OR, you are not an effective estimator of the speed at which another vehicle is travelling.

What do you think is more likely?

It’s such fun ‘trying’ to pick the bus drivers in bus threads, and the police offices in cop threads….! 🙂

But if they don’t speed the other bus drivers will tailgate them…

I caught some buses yesterday too. The drivers were great, however they took the longest route possible, the bus stopped every 200m to accept and let passengers off and it was like sitting inside a furnace, not to mention the 40 minute walk home when it was quicker because there wasn’t a bus coming. Nothing like some good network planning, looking forward to seeing more of exactly the same in network 2012 later this year. But as long as our leader enjoys having a nice old chat to the drivers it’s all fine and dandy..

Twitter.

FFS, can someone tell Katy that a few words are not a substitute for real consultation and policy.

Can we get some real politicians in this place? The current ones are making Stanhope look like a colossus.

… yeah, and the Queen thinks the whole world smells like fresh paint.

I wonder whether she has become used to the smell and doesn’t notice it any more.

Next up, sending the servants home and preparing a meal on her own. Hilarity ensues over twitter.

Can’t wait.

Gold!

Yeah I guess that this is to soften us up for another blow to public transport…with cancellation of services. Or a fare rise.

Funny about that Twitter thing; it seems to attract a certain vain type of person.
