OC Transpo a keen student of the Harperites…

Again, where are the buses, OC Transpo? If your schedule goes into summer mode, at least tell us about it! Ten minutes at Hurdman before a 38 showed up!

Oh, I get it. You’re taking your cues from the Harperites. Cut back on services and the information sources used to measure whether or not said services have actually been, you know, cut back.

Oh, and according to the HP, Glenn Beck might be going blind. That’s truly sad. I mean, why isn’t it his voice that he’s losing?

    Trying to get a bus home on Friday afternoons is ALWAYS a hit or miss proposition. It’s so bloody annoying when I knock myself out to get to the bus terminal in plenty of time to catch the bus so I can go home and start enjoying my weekend and instead I have to sit around there for 30 – 45 minutes while they decide whether or not to toss a bus our way. By then the thing is jam-packed and takes twice as long to get home. Bastards!

    Changes like that are apparently available… On their site somewhere, IIRC. But that’s S.O.P for OC. Always has been, always will be. Hence my absolute distaste of spending one more penny on expanding routes, lite rail, tunnels, etc until OC is managed better.

    It was weird Ken, and it’s happening more and more often, especially, but not limited to, Fridays.
    Huge crowd of riders waiting to transfer and bus after bus goes by with “out of service” on the front… or only going as far as downtown…
    In my area, the 149 sorta shows up some days and some days it doesn’t… or it’s late/early (tough to know whiech sometimes). Peeps have bitched but to no avail… seems random.

  4. I was gonna say… OC Transpo has had the same schedule change dates for the entire 22 years i’ve lived here.

    I do hope that if the driver called in sick that they will make him produce a medical certificate.

    @Ken
    I’m not talking about scheduled changes, but unscheduled ones… the ones that happen on sunny summer days, or Fridays, for example… driver calls in “sick” and the supervisors don’t bother to replace the run…
