On the buses, again…

IT was mentioned on one of the threads earlier, but I think this public transport forum – Transtink – deserves a wider audience. Remember Translink’s boast last year about Metro buses every 10 minutes on most routes? Well, it doesn’t apply over the summer (at least not on the route I live on!), thanks to the holiday timetable, which runs all July and August.

So I’ve decided to take my life in my hands and started cycling to work again – which gets me there about 10 minutes faster anyway. The only problem is that on Royal Avenue, some bus drivers have nearly run me over on more than a few occasions…

Maybe they’ve been reading Slugger or listening to Talkback…
