Volunteers * UK - Take to streets to monitor two routes pinpointed as unreliable
Late-running bus drivers – you’re booked!
London,UK -The Camden New Journal, by SARA NEWMAN -3 July 2008: -- Irate passengers, angry at buses that fail to stop or arrive in pairs after long waits, are getting their own back in West Hampstead... A new neighbourhood project set up by West Hampstead Amenities and Transport (WHAT) committee has seen passengers using bus report cards to note down poor service... Members are particularly concerned about the service on routes C11 and 328. One passenger has already recorded five 328 buses passing through Mill Lane in just over two minutes... TfL has invested £116million in global positioning system tracking to help co-ordinators keep tabs on London’s fleet of 8,000 buses... A TfL spokeswoman said it was not always possible to mitigate the impact of roadworks and diversions on bus services...
