The 800th issue of Buses arrived and has been enjoyed today; congratulations are due to all concerned on reaching another milestone edition of the magazine I have been reading avidly for the past 600 or so months.
James Day comments, with reference to the recent petrol queues, that "people have not considered simply travelling on a different mode of transport." Over the page we read of driver shortages worsening and possible strikes in sections of the industry. A few pages on we read that Arriva ‘gives up on Guildford.’ And further into the magazine there are the now-regular comments regarding ‘Bus Back Better.’
Roger French describes his management walkabouts and opines that there remains plenty of room for improvement today.
Indeed, that is the case.
