Why people don’t take the bus

Since Friday I have somehow or another been in pain with my leg. Because I need to give it a rest I decided (and was told by Purpose) to take the bus to work and back.

Now I have seen some pretty good and bad bus services through all my travels, but every time there is a bad service (only everywhere outside of London it seems), I still can’t help but think “this is why no one rides the bus!”.

To get home today, though leaving the office at the same time, is going to take at least an hour more than walking! Now you can see why the 30 walk has been my option all week. To further put it into context, this trip, which on my push scooter take 15 minutes door to door, costs me £3.50.

I can’t help but feel revolted that because I am injured that it should take so long nor cost so much! But because of poor service, vital routes are stopped so you don’t have to take 2 buses to get every where in a small town, and costs so much.

I have seen though in the past a 10 mile journey take 2 1/2 hours and only possible in one direction, leaving me stuck!

I have had enough though! With such fantastic service in London, I just want to demand the driver take me straight home every time. I am paying enough for it to warrant a door to door service, so why not?
