Worst ever this morning.
Not just in one place. We stopped for a long time at virtually every other bus stop down Filton Avenue.
One or two people get on. They sit down. And the bus doesn't pull away for another couple of minutes. (At least they don't get thrown to the ground as the bus lurches into action before they've sat down.)
I'm guessing the drivers do this to make sure the buses aren't running ahead of schedule.
But I also guess the timetables are written with bags of slack - so that when the traffic is heavy they're still "on time".
Why do they keep the timings the same for buses in the rush hour and buses at quieter times? Just means that when the roads are clear, and passengers have the opportunity to sail in and out of town, we still have to trundle along in a bus-company-generated invisible imaginary traffic jam.
