It was in the latest CBW magazine that a Stagecoach response to a complaint from a councillor about punctuality of its citi1 service in Walton, Peterborough made me smile. Complaining that the wait many of his constituents have to endure is 'more than half an hour for buses which are meant to come every 10 minutes', Stagecoach's response is:
"The delays are due to traffic hold-ups, caused by the city's lack of bus lanes."
So, does this mean that Stagecoach timed its citi1 with theoretical and aspirational bus lanes in mind? "Shorely shome mishtake"!
