sounds pretty off-colour to me.
because it has a bendy bit in the middle.
I hate them. Shamefully I have to get on them quite a bit not being near a tube. They always have weirder people on them.
It is like a episode of unbreakable being on the 73
My house mate commutes to work on it all the way from stokey to soho. The man has got gumption.
the n29 is the most criminal bus on the entire london network!
bendy buses are great and anyone who disagrees obviously has never been on the N29 when it was a double decker.
It's clearly insane I was stand next a puddle of vomit for 30 minutes a few weeks ago.
It was vile
i'll be gone by the time they come in though, probably. Don't even know if they'll go anywhere I want though.
ticket inspectors rarely get on, so you can just jump on and not have to worry.
I get the 18 quite often when i go to see my mates in Harlesden/Stonebridge. They're horrid. I was on one that crashed once too.
Didn't Boris say he was going to get rid of them?
although i was on one once where they stopped at a check point and loads of inspectors got on and checked everyones tickets. That was only one time ever and ive never heard of it before or since though...
if they get on, you get off. i can't imagine they've any legal powers over you once you're off the bus.
there were police officers milling about on the pavement by the bus. or maybe that's because it was central london on a friday night..
one said "i might not beep my oyster, you never see inspectors" so i recounted the story of homesick_alien getting busted at like 4am for not beeping in and my friend then did it. three stops later a team of inspectors piles onto the bus and he was very glad indeed he took my advice.
but couldn't you just buy a bus ticket?
they were racing/crashing them on top gear tonight. fun way to make a living.
i haven't watched telly in weeks, i really need to sort it out
they toppled a double-decker too.
I'm sorry to say no.
about 10 years ago.
then they started appearing in other cities.
sheffield is the future of transport, keep up
we have supertrams too, not sure what makes them "super" though.
