OC Transpo, why dost thou…

…sucketh so mightily?

I have been keeping a log of OC Transpo misfires over the past little while. And I guess it’s time to publish them.

For the record, I didn’t log those trips that were only a minute or two late… no need to be THAT fussy, but still, the 148 is the local run through Alta Vista. Aside from the odd wheelchair and stroller, there really shouldn’t be much of a delay to Hurdman to make the 15:23 run back to Elmvale.

So, for what it’s worth:

Sept 22 Hurdman 148, 15:38 bus…driver laid up until 15:45 for no reason apparent reason. He seemed to be reading the Ottawa Sun.

Sept 27. 15:22 148 showed up at Hurdman at 15:32

Sept 29 Hurdman 148, 15:38 bus arrived at 15:48

Oct 13 14:23 148 7 minutes late.149
at 15:21 was a no show

Oct 13 8:15 149 at Haig and Pleasant Park was a no show.

Nov 4 – Hurdman 15:23 148 arrived at 15:29

Nov 7 – Hurdman 15:23 148 arrived at 15:30

Nov 8 – Hurdman 16:38 148 arrived at 16:43

Nov 15– Hurdman 15:23 148 arrived at 15:33

Not pretty, is it?

    Do you have any idea how great it is to decide on the spur-of-the-moment that you want to go somewhere and there’s always (or at least within 5 minutes) some form of public transportation available to get you there?

      As Bugs Bunny would say: “aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, shaddup!”
