What is this schedule of which you speak? :wtf:

It's a bit of public transportation arcana that few are privy to - some who claim to have seen it say it's alchemical in it's complexity - dealing with the appearance and disappearance of public transport units.

It's my understanding that many bus lines are using the latest Slovakian metro-buses that are designed for traffic circles, AKA roundabouts, and driver relief. A sleepy driver enters a traffic circle, pulls a special lever which locks the front wheels into place to perfectly match in innermost radius and sets the speed at 5 miles per hour; and, all the driver has to do is pull the curtain, recline the seat, and have a restorative nap. After 50 circuits, an alarm sounds and in 30 seconds the mechanism disengages and the driver retakes control and continues on the assigned route. Safe. Sane. Efficient.

They should line all bus drivers up along a long wall and machine gun them. Safe. Sane. Efficient.

It would seem that a suggestion such as you have made against those who drive 10 tonne vehicles would be counter productive. Since I only have an academic interest in the subject, and the roads I traverse are too narrow for a bus, I shall post no further on the subject. I would only add that it's a pleasure to visit a site where ratiocination is the rule and name calling and base slurs have no place. :)

They were incredibly lucky to escape that incident, two goals in the last ten minutes isn't easy. :D

It's a small town, population approximately 21,261, situated just off the A61 in North Derbyshire midway between Chesterfield and my home city of Sheffield.

Sherwood Travel is a company that has coaches for hire for the corporate class. It's a family run business that seems to operate on a "for hire' basis.
BOQ doesn't have devoted members in the area for field verification but the company seems to be non-union. :(
