Bus! You’re Too Early!

December 10 2018

So while I’m writing this, I stand here, once again at the bus stop by The Sherwood, waiting for a bus to take me into town.

It’s become a regular occurrence with the buses going from Frankton into Queenstown, not because I am late for the bus though, it’s because the bus is ALWAYS 3-5 minutes early! This time around I’m walking down the road to catch the bus that should be at the Sherwood bus stop at 8:47, but to my horror I find that it is driving past at 8:44! What clock are these bus drivers on?

Surely they can sync their clocks to the right time as everyone else’s smartphones? I’m not too bothered if you’re a few minutes late, but it’s not my fault surely if you’re arriving too early! Can these guys either update their timetables or drive past the bus stops at the right time please?

Also, how about extending the times for the last bus from town whilst they’re at it? I’m sure there’s plenty demand for that, especially in the summertime.
