I FEEL sooooo... sorry for Mrs Hyde; how terrible for her having to wait 10 minutes when a bus misses (Maibag November 26).
She should be grateful that she receives a 'regular 10-minute service' during the day. I live at Hill Top, Slaithwaite, and we receive a dreadful service compared to her. During the day we have an hourly well-used service 348 and during the evening a bi-hourly service which regularly misses or runs late.
I am unable to go out in the evening without securing a lift home from good friends. Our last bus leaves town at 10pm.
As for her complain about the “boneshakers” we know all about the beasts.
We, too, find them smelly but don’t have a choice. An hour’s wait for another bus would be very tedious. I would willing wait just 10 minutes for another bus.
