One thing that really bugs me regarding transport in London is the service of the C11 bus that goes through west Hampstead, Swiss Cottage and Brent Cross.
Not only is it inefficient and never on time, but the drivers are slow and have a problem a) noticing the red light 'stopping' sign when it is displayed in the bus and b)seem totally unable to hear the bell to stop, which means they drive straight past your stop.
Today, a driver was unable to attempt to park the bus at the shelter because he was not willing to try to park in a space that was taken up by cars - in fact there WAS enough space for the bus to pull in if the driver could be bothered to manoeuvre.
The bus drove on to the next stop and it was so far away from where I intended to get off it made me late for work because I had to walk all the way back.
C11 London bus service - they do try to be on time...
I once wrote to Transport for London about the frequent lateness of the C11 and received a letter explaining they do try to be on time, along with a coloured bar chart that seemed to insinuate the C11 left the garage every few minutes nice, but it doesn't help me when I am frequently made late for work thanks to the C11 bus service!
