Used to be a regular traveller on the 172 from SE1 to Aldwych.
Then Abellio took the route over.
The buses stop,unannounced,for a driver change at New Kent Road
,for unspecified periods,then run slowly to timetable,clogging the OKR and inconveniencing passengers and any traffic stuck behind them.
On July 7,the bus made its usual driver change stop.We allwaited.Then the bus finally pulled out,drove 3 yards,then stopped.
We had to ask the A-veryslow inspector what was occurring,to be told that the driver had forgotten to tell the passengers that the bus was terminating.
An amateurish operation that are turning the New kent Road int a one lane bus park and slowing up other operators and traffic trying to get past them.
