RE: Birmingham Transport - 3
This is the place where Brummies used to chat about Birmingham old and new along with anything else that interests us.
We have Quizzes, Pizzas, Local History, News, Politics, Wedding Cake, Plum Pudding, Champagne, Easter Eggs and, above all, Respect for our fellow members.
Our wonderful local bus service has been battered again. National Express in their infinite wisdom have taken Services 41 and 32 off and replaced them with a combined Route no. 42. Now considering the 41 was incredibly unreliable (ie you were lucky if it came). the new route doesn't cover all of the roads that the two routes it replaces covered., and in the mornings it is used by many school children, and sometimes it doesn't stop for them. Considering this is a half hourly service and the reliability is even worse than the 41 was, this is appalling. Any visitors reading this with any comments regarding this or any other service please feel free to comment. Just register and you will be made very welcome. Sheldon

Buy a car or better still a pushbike, then you won't have to worry about the buses. All you will have to worry about is me, I try to bag at least one cyclist a week. Its so easy just a little flick of the steering wheel as I pass by.
Observing the standard of driving on our roads is precisely why I don't ride a bike. I live just about within reach of work by cycle, but it's too dangerous. Plus the fact that I don't think I could take the weather any more, I'm too flippin old for that game and certainly too lazy. SB
Do not take life too seriously - you are not going to get out of it alive anyway.
