Bus Spotters Alight Here Part II

Tue Jan 22, 2008 11:18 pm

Unfortunately, our little bus spotting convention was cut short by my posting of a copyrighted picture. So apologies moderators, and apologies to the rest of you minnions for what was turning into a wonderful inisight into the world of buses, and Banco's blatant disregard for all things public transport  biggrin 

So let's start again... JGPH1A, maybe you could start us off?

Can anyone point me to a website that will have info/pictures on 1950s 1960s AEC single decker buses? Sorry dont know model number(s)

These were the memorable (for me) government buses of the time run by MMTB (Melbourne Metropolitan Tramways Board)

To be fair, I feel bus travel has improved quite a lot since I was small, whatever bus spotters will doubtless say about the "good old days". As I think I remember saying in the other topic, going to town when I was a little one involved folding up the pushchair and either getting on a tiny Ford Transit minibus or - worse - getting on a rickety old double decker with smoking allowed throughout... Now you get on a brightly lit bus and you just wheel the pushchair straight on as the bus lowers itself to kerb level.

Longer distances though are where I've seen the greatest improvement. Coaches used to be awful... stiff seats, bolt upright, no legroom, rattling windows, no air and yet no way of opening the windows, no seatbelts, etc etc...
Now I find going to London by coach from Oxford a far more pleasant way to get there than by train (train used to be comfortable before the introduction of the Diabolical Multiple Unit - the Thames Turbo). Better frequency (every 10 mins vs. every 30), better fares (£14 vs. about £40 peak/£20 off peak), more personal space, smoother ride, reclining seats, free wi-fi, clean facilities, breakfast and a paper (OK, so it's the Independent) on board in the morning, and no standing. Furthermore, there's NO last bus! Unless you need to be there half an hour sooner there's virtually no point taking the train.

Worst thing about bus travel is the expense; it is significantly more expensive than the train from my house to Lancaster; particularly for a return journey.

Not so dignified as a Routemaster. Let him use a bendy-bus! If he's lucky he may escape without catching fire!

I kind of wish the bus ran where I live now.. Bus fare is 85 cents here and I burn about $1 worth of gas each way to work/school.
