Is Livingstone really to blame?

After reading what he has done for buses in London, including Harrow, I don't think he is to blame. Afterall in the eight years that he has been mayor he's done so much to fix London's transport crisis, especially buses. Ok so he might have introduced policies which we don''t like, such as children getting on for free and then causing grief. Nevertheless he has tryed to improve the safety of these buses by installing CCTV in ALL London buses. Come on this is great!!! This is something new which wasn't in force a couple of years ago. I was on a bus yesterday in Harrow and was able to report anti-social behaviour to the bus driver because I could see what was happening upstairs from a screen downstairs. FABULOUS! Furthermore, Livingstone plans to do alot more if he is re-elected.


How can London improve its bus service?
  • 25% agreed that more buses running would improve the quality of London's bus service.

  • 23% reflected the idea that the poor bus service was due to the present mayor and having a new mayor for London would mean a better bus service.

  • 20% responses concluded that the bus fares are too high and lowering the price would improve the bus service.

  • 16% suggested that an improved bus service would be in need of more staff to make the buses more safe.

  • 14% of votes casted want the mayor to reintroduce child fares. This is what I would have voted for myself.

  • Finally.....2% suggest to increase adult fares in order to improve London's bus service. That must have been a teenager.

Results are based on a survey responded to by 22 people who gave two votes each. Thanks to all those who spent their time to vote.

Good on ya!

last night school kids were making so much noise on the bus yesterday that the bus driver had enough. the lady bus driver confronted the kids and told them to get off her bus and refused to move till they did. eventually they had to get off and the bus driver was very pleased when she was backed by the other passengers on the bus. it was so great. sheer bliss when they got off the bus. good on ya!

Back to usual!!! not only was the bus late and kids causing problems but there was nowhere at all to sit. ok so theres nothing unusual about that. of course the bus would be packed if it came late. the unusual thing was that some man had given a perfectly good seat to his big dog. (dogs aren't even allowed on buses, except guide dogs) and this was certainly not a guide dog. i thought it was terrible that an old lady had to stand up whilst a dog had a seat. I guess the dog got on free like the school children as well.

harrow bus station has 10 people monitoring the times of buses today. which was really good because the buses came on time for once. today has been a pleasant day to travel on harrow buses. probably becuase it was during school times...

school kids

the bus wasn't late today but my jounrney was delayed due to silly school kids annoying the bus drivers by jumping on the bus from the back doors. it's bad enough that they get on the bus for free which means that more of them are using it. but come on!!!!can't they use the front door.

i guess it's the same everywhere but the bus service in harrow is appauling. it's true what they say you do wait so long for one and then three come at the same time. it's so annoying. i hate it.
