Anything but the rubbish in town, and the ones that have had the sides removed!

The ones in town are slightly improving. At least some have upgraded to have seats, instead of awkwardly leaning on something far from a seat. A bezel, shall we say.

One thing Daimler Mercedes Benz are good at is producing excellent Diesel engines, I do miss the sound of the 0405n for all its faults you couldn't knock that 12 litre engine.

The stops in the city are a disgrace. Clayderman, where are the improved stops you refer to?

Some around Moor St/Carrs lane have had bigger 'sides' put on and the 37 stop on Carrs lane has had a small bench put in

Lighten up LS, it's Christmas.

Think that Centro really need to look at Bus Stop flags, many are now fading badly.

Also some of the flags are really dirty, couldn't the people who clean the bus shelters clean the flags or maybe they could be fitted with a spray to squirt water on them, and then a wiper to clean the water off?
Pensnett is my local garage. Favourite bus of all time is Fleetline 6360 (KON 360P).

Actually that could take off, would really come in useful in places like darlaston where the pigeons deficate all over the bus stop flags. Think you might be on to something...
