Oh no, not another bus thread....



I'm not surprised at all by the decision. It looks as though the route will be similar to what it was 20 years ago.

I wonder if they purposely left that part out of the announcement to see if those 14 people would notice or not.

When it comes to council decisions, it seems the squeaky wheel always gets the grease. Just ask Kidsport who will probably get free rent because they made an "impassioned plea" to council, while most non-profit organizations have to pay rent in their privately owned buildings.

Ok I checked and it seems the 16 will still enter Schumacher at certain times (or sorry, the 16-A)
