After moving house a few months ago the public transport options have become a little bit more limited, I can really only catch the 312 bus which goes from the city (Canberra) to Woden, then to Tuggeranong and eventually down through the streets near where I live.
Yesterday I jumped on the 312 and was soon asked to hop off. Apparently a junkie (sobriety challenged individual) had been sick on one of the back seats. We were told that we should catch the 160 behind to Woden then catch our buses from there. Anyway, I did what I was told and ended up at Woden at around 4:30, just in time to see another 312 pull out – damn!
Anyway, I looked at the schedule and it looked like the next 312 was going to be around 5:30 so I sat tight and waited, and waited, and waited. In fact – I waited until about 7:10 and went up to the service counter and asked if there was a problem with the 312 services. I’m pretty sure that the ACTION staff member thought I was completely mad when I told him that there had been no 312 services since about 4:30PM. Anyway – as we were talking a 312 came around the corner (about 10 minutes late) and I jumped onboard. Now I can’t be sure if I am completely insane or whether there was some problem with the 312 services yesterday.
Fortunately the 312 into the city was perfectly on time – having said that I’d love to see a service where I can catch the bus at say 10:00AM and get in to the city at about 8:00AM.
