Well, I can't count how many times I misses the bus in this summer. I am always 5 min to the supposed time, but, almost everytime, I see the bus leaving right before my eye. Or they will be late for 10 min. One time, I need to go downtown for work experience. The bus was late for 20 min. Thank god, I planned to be there 30 min early, or else I would be very screwed.

Anyway, how is the bus system at where you live? Is it as bad as mine?

Once the bus was an hour late. I never saw them on time in my area. Either that or my watch is always off. ^_^

In the french city where I has studied, the hours were just probable hours... but the closer you are from the first station, the more likely were the hours to be "good". But in Tahiti, it's really another matter...

Taking a bus is part of my route to school, but my situation is a little different. At the bus terminal there are about 5 different buses that pass my destination so chances are there will always be at least one bus there when I arrive. So, I've actually never looked at the schedules for those buses, lol.

For other places, I have to check the schedules since depending on the location, the frequency of bus service vary greatly. And I also find that the buses are either running late or they arrive and leave to early. And if you miss a bus that only comes once ever half an hour, you'll be in trouble. Overall, I find buses quite troublesome and unreliable, if given a choice, I'd much rather take the subway.

As a general rule I think the buses in my area are not more than 15 minutes off to begin with, but I figure with traffic as unpredictable as it is there are some extreme variances durring rush hour. Of course, I don't ride the city buses in my area because I don't really think it is particularly safe so... I guess I could be wrong.

If you would challenge me, then you must first stand before the Darkness. You must look into it and become it. You must fall before it and then reach out to encompass it. When it is joined to your heart, you must overcome its insidious temptation. You are ready to face me when you can betray even your own heart in service to your cause.

Buses here are not usually late. The latest they have been (from my knowledge) is about 3-5 minutes. Then again... I haven't taken the bus for a couple months. My parents drive me to where I need to go XD.

Thank you RainOfStars for the kick ass signature!

The public transport system in my country is completely useless. Also, the buses are always late. You can't ever trust the timetables, because they're never up to date. And there always seems to be some sort of disagreement with the bus company and the drivers, argh...

Sorry, I don't use bus as a means of transportation but rather some jeepneys in our country. And they are everywhere...

Pfft.. Where I live has the worst bus service in the world, no doubt.. You can be waiting up to 2-3 hours for a bus at some times, since they have a tendancy to either run late all the time, or just plain go missing.. Can be a real pain when you are really pressed for time..

btw, that 2-3 hours wait is on rare occasions, but they are very commonlyh an hour late. I'm guessing you know the answer to the question from me, now. XD

i was wondering about the same thing ^_^' i grew up in a town where there was no bus system... except for those yellow school buses which are much more reliable because the students depended on those (and oh yeah, no possibility to be stuck on red lights where i come from XD) than city buses btw...

now, i'm in a city that has a bus system, but i don't have to take the bus real often... my school is about 30 minutes away from my appartment by foot, so it just gives me a reason to exercice... and if i have to take a bus, it's usually those buses that pass every 20 or so minutes, so, often, i don't even check the schedule for those, i take them when they get to the bus stop xd... but if i have to take the type of bus that passes only once per hour... i'll make sure to arrive to the bus stop really early... like a half hour before the scheduled time... better be safe than sorry ^_^' LOLL

I think it must be hard for buses to keep up with the schedule, kind of like with airplanes in airports.
Besides school buses, there really isn't a bus transportation system in my city.
