I am sorry for your travel troubles Tom Pepper, but I am writing to admire- your use of the word 'parapluie' which I expect is the first on this forum. Exceptional - and no I am not being sarky. Respect.

C10s last night were chucking everyone off at thhe elephant despite having Canada water on the front and being stuffed full-we were told there was another bus behind which there was but it was already full when it got to us

Dreadful way to run a bus service!

Vous êtes très aimable Kory, je parle souvent le français, c'était la seule leçon intéressante à mon école, ma femme est surpris quand nous sommes à La République.
Dit-elle, "je pensais que tout était un chauffeur de taxi, pas un linguiste!"

LOL! (or: rire à haute voix according to google translate) )

In Tanzania, apparently (according to Wikipedia).

Or did you mean "Where is the blood?" (sang)
Or "Where is the monkey?" (singe)

Either way, ???

Seems like a return to the bad old days under Limebourne - I well remember waiting over an hour for a bus at Victoria when they should have been every 15 minutes. When I phoned TfL Enquiries they said there was nothing they could do about it...

Wouldn't have been much help when any buses following will be rammed but if the bus you are on does terminate before the destination shown when you got on and you have paid cash or Oyster PAYG then you are entitled to a bus transfer ticket so you don't need to pay again on the next bus. One of several benefits to the passenger TfL keeps virtually silent on - more details here: Bus Transfer Tickets

I agree that it is happening more and more and it means journeys take ages. Is this a TfL policy or just an inability to run a service.

Feel like I should say that in French.
