I'm with you darrenm
In the months after they extended the 168 to Tesco, they regularly terminated early at Elephant or at Bricklayers. I complained at the time.
I noticed they were doing the same in October/November this year during all the roadworks at Waterloo and on the New Kent Road
, but the short stopping seems to have continued even now that the roadworks are mostly complete.
It is not unusual for 40 or so people to get dumped on the pavement and have to fight their way onto already overcrowded buses behind.
You don't need to pay again on the next bus, even if you are using Pay As You Go. If the destination of the bus changed during the journey, you can ask the driver for a transfer ticket. I often wish all 40 people did, as the time taken would be about the same as driving to Tesco.
You can complain to firstname.lastname@example.org It helps if you have the time the bus terminated and the running number of the bus which is usually on a yellow plate near the front or rear doors. The 168's running numbers all start AR followed by a number.
