#1

Buses should be numbered such that their numbers add like vectors. So, getting a 15 and a 5 would get you to the same destination as a 20. I’m not sure how it would work with two 10s.


#2

This sounds like exactly the sort of logistical shake-up those fucking arseholes could do with. Excellent idea Foppsinho.


#3

I endorse this. This would definitely work. Definitely.


#4

We should press on with the implementation of this before anyone manages to pick holes in it.


#5

i love it. i’ll talk to the guys in parliament later


#6

My idea is better…

Bus numbers should all be in the range from 1 to 360 and the route number should correspond to the bearing from origin to terminus.


#7

Sounds awful and pointless
Not into it

#9

this has done me

not sure why


#10

What if two terminuses (termini?) lie on the same bearing ffs


#11

Such a negative nelly.

Imagine being a tourist somewhere and missing the number 20, you’d know how to get to wherever you’re going without much effort. If you could only get a 17 and a 4, you’d know you’d get pretty close, 22 is pretty close to 20.


#12

They would have different origins in that case, so it shouldn’t really be an issue.


#13

I dunno, I imagine there’d be all sorts of problems when it came to practicalities.


#14

Maybe they start at the same bus station but do their terminusing at different locations on the same bearing. One close, one far away.

#16

But you’d then add like 2 hours to your journey or something
Buses come along every few mins so it’s not an issue is it


#17

In that case you could use letters to differentiate the services.


#18

An aisle after the checkouts in the supermarket in case you forget something, then you can buy it in that aisle.


#19

where are you getting 2 hours from? 20 isn’t the duration of the journey in hours.


#20

Not into this one either
