I recently went by bus, about 4 weeks ago, to go to the city and the dentist.
I find the train is quicker as my bus service, although it is outside my door, the service is hopeless and in the middle of the day is only every hour.
I last rode a bus yesterday to visit a friend whose father died a week ago. I went to her hometown to supposedly attend the burial but was unable to make it. I did accompany my friend going back to the city via bus. At least my presence kept her from crying her eyes out. Had she been alone, she'd have felt lonelier.
Just the other day I caught the bus into town to do some shopping. Including parking time as well as driving, it doesn't take any longer on the bus, it's cheaper than paying for parking and I can crochet as I travel rather than having the stress of battling with city traffic! Win win win.
I used to travel by bus very often,until I became so ill. Now I will get the bus from the hospital to just around the corner from home,but only when I am having a very easy day with my pain. I think the last time was about 6 weeks ago!
I sometimes too get the 461 bus , but one day last wel i decided to catch the bus to go to work and i must have waited for 30 mi utes the bus was late at 8.15am, i could not wait so just walked back home got in my car and drove to work.
If I'm not out with friends who drive, I travel by bus all the time as I don't drive. My late husband was my chauffeur and when he was alive I never travelled on a bus. It has been a bit of a lifestyle change but I quite enjoy the journey sometimes, especially if not in peak hours.
I'd been to my sisters place for the night on Friday 13th May, Had caught 2 trains to my local station, then had to wait 15/20 minutes for my local bus. it was the last bus to where I live, that evening.
I've just found this question again, Oct '16!. Only yesterday, my husband & I went to our local hospital. 2 buses & 1 train, both ways, and it's only 6 k's away. The parking is very expensive at hospitals, so we always go by public transport, even though it makes a much longer train ride We only have a 1hr bus service from where live & back again of cause, so it takes an hour to get there, by 3 buses, or 2 buses & a train.
This is now the 3rd time I've found this question. It's now Sept 2, '17. I got a lift to the station 3 mornings ago, caught the train for a 1&1/2hr train journey, both ways, to have lunch with a primary school friend, then had to 10 minutes for the bus home after the return train journey. .
I've just found this question for the 4th time, & the last time I used a bus was 4 days ago to go from our place to the station & later in the after noon, it was of cause, from there station to our place, after catching 2 trains both ways, before & after my little bus trip.
About 6 weeks ago I drove a couple of suburbs away, parked my car in a side street and walked to the T-way to catch a bus to the dental hospital. So much cheaper than having to pay for parking at the hospital and all the disabled parking spots are taken by 7.30 a.m. so it's a win for me
