"Please hold on, this bus is about to move."


#1

Anyone been on a bus recently?

They’re a bit shit aren’t they?

Got any bus-related stories?


#2

Fuck a bus. Load of bullshit.


#3

seems really excessive to play it every 20 seconds


#4

Haven’t noticed this. Last time I was on an 88 I noticed it was getting unnecessarily talky about touching in, fines, contactless and so on though.


#5

My dog’s dead into buses. When we first got her we didn’t have a car so we took her by bus everywhere. Now if she sees a bus she stops to see if anyone she knows is getting off. Last time she was on the bus with the gf she licked the top of a mans bald head


#6

Saw a woman fall down the stairs of a double decker once. She was ok but very embarrassed.


#7

Went on some buses on Saturday and they were quite slow and yes, I’m surprised this announcement hasn’t driven all the bus drivers around the bend.


#8

:rofl:

Quite want to meet your dog.


#9

massivelyprefer buses to trains
cosier and i dig the vibrations


#10

Sometimes they make me sneeze.


#11

Yes

It’s pointless, as the message comes on after the bus has started moving.

No


#12

When you’re up in Stockport you can if you come into town! She’s a top lad


#13

Where did you go?


#14

Makes me want to cave my own head in


#15

usually got my headphones on and don’t pay much attention but they’re so excessive that i take them off to see what’s going on and it’s always that same pointless message

*shakes fist*

Angel > Clerkenwell

Two trips within one hour, so got the second ride for free.


#17

errmm used to get the fight bus from Manchester

scallies just used to shout “oasis” at us but that was about it.


#18

Yes

No, they’re not. They’re a cheap, efficient way of moving people around, and crucial to many people’s, and communities’, existence.

Not really, no.


#19

haven’t been a bus wanker with any real frequency since I lived in London over 20 years ago

You could smoke on the top deck then - and it cost 50p a journey (or something)

Really don’t enjoy getting buses

Bus stories
Once I was on the top deck of a brighton bus and the bus driver drove the bus into the branches of a tree and the front top deck window cracked and we all had to get off the bus

Once I was trying to get home from a night out and it was snowing and the bus couldn’t get up the TDF cat 3 climb of Elm Grove and I had to walk home through the snow all the way to Woodingdean
