Other operators - Andreos1 - 16/04/2013

Just came across this interesting read about value for money with operators.

Relevant to all operators...

This bus race was really interesting, thanks for the link (I totally forgot about this event). 

btw. those buses are already on available to the public?

Just been on Facebook and saw this poll from Preston Bus pop up in my feed.

Thoughts? I have actually heard the radios on these hybrids, thankfully it wasn't too loud (some of the comments under the poll want the radios turned up though), I could play music from my phone/iPod to drown it out but I feel that I shouldn't have to just because I'm being made to listen to music I chance to dislike, that's just my thoughts anyway.[Image: 094f7de71a06a238a1cc6896c42133af.jpg]

I quite like a radio on, even if the music isn't great, so long as it's not loud. I hate piped music in shops, though. It's deafening (and always dire) in the disabled loo in Sunderland debenhams. Bigun really struggles with it, but I'm not much better, particularly in a supermarket where it scrambles my brain and I can't even think about what I'm trying to buy.

Reminds me that I can put my own on, now littlun has gone to bed. I like a bit of Gid Coe, in the evenings. Littlun won't let me have the radio plugged in. One of his more annoying obsessions.

Constant service changes which include reduction in frequency of service in order to improve reliability and withdraw older vehicles from fleet, constant fare rises which are not justifiable, need I say more?
