The saddest bus on Christmas Day

By johnboy - 18 December 2012 18

The ACT Government is busily publishing their Christmas service details.

To that end we have the Canberra Connect shopfront hours.

But ACTION have also let it be known which of their confusing array of services schedules will be in effect.

And there we have the precious snowflake known as the “Christmas Day Timetable.

And there we find the sad little service known as Route 90, which has exactly two stops, the civic bus interchange (it will never be the City Bus Station to me) and the Alexander Maconochie Centre.

One can only imagine who will catch the bus arriving at the Centre at 3pm with the last bus leaving at 3.15pm.

What’s Your opinion?

I see the Schadenfreude contingent has come out in force. Just so you know, it’s not funny and never will be

TROLLS!!!

This post is a perfect example of why Action could never win what ever they do. One poster Sammy is whining because (it appears) that Action is dead running a bus or two, another Hades is whining the direct opposite that Action is running a bus in service that appears to serve no purpose.

You all want to consider yourselves lucky that we even have a bus service on Christmas day and that it serves people and places like this. Spare a thought for the people of that massive city called London. Believe it or not on Christmas day they have no (TfL) provided services at all, in a city that is clearly far less car driven as us.

Maybe the AMC has employees and shifts change around these time?

Jeez you’re a ratbag. Who could possibly think such a thing?

I figure that whoever catches this bus will be grateful for the service, and whoever complains will probably not be caring come Christmas lunch.

What a waste of a day for the poor bus driver, that must be the shift of shame for that driver.

It makes no sense at all to have a ‘last’ bus to what could be described as a remote location without a return service. Why that last bus? Will it carry a shift of prison officers to work? Here’s a suggestion. Perhaps the last bus could swing by and do a remandee pickup at the watch house before its arduous 20 minute journey to the Hilton. There won’t be any families on it. That might make sense.

Any chance of putting a sniffer dog on that bus to check for “presents”?

@ Sammy:
Doubt it would return to the interchange empty. Probably heads off to a different route.
Might also have something to do with the visiting hours @ AMC…don’t quote me on it.

Visitors can ride push bikes out to the jail.

This timetable illustrates all that is wrong with Action. What happens to, for example, the service that arrives at AMC at 1pm? With no return service around the same time, it returns to the interchange empty?

Sammy 1:34 pm 18 Dec 12

Are they allowing conjugal visits for Christmas night?

Paul0075 12:53 pm 18 Dec 12

Maybe the last bus out to the Canberra Hilton is for conjugal visitors 😛

I’m hearing “How to Make Gravy” in my head.
