Experiences in Willenhall provide a pitiful example of poor service with two 13 departing out of service 4837 and 4994. One driver said you can write in but it won't make any difference.
The 21 didn't seem much better 2170 turned up and went dead. Indicative of schedules with poor resiliance.
Waiting passenger said they don't give a sh*t.

Sorry but if I've guessed when you are referring to, 2170 turning up at 17:49 (17 minutes late) and being run to another point to fill the big gap in front when 4833 left at 17:50 one minute later seems like someone does care, would you prefer 2170 & 4833 ran together with a huge gap in front of them?

Are BC about to have new ticket machines installed? I only ask because while stood at the front of the X2 this morning waiting for the bus to approach my stop, there was a call going out on the radio for Bristol Road drivers about ticket machine training?

The platinums are being done with a visit to Walsall, so that Coventry can start accepting contactless in January

One of the things well have to get used to these days I suppose.
Numerous times I've gone to London and forgot to switch cards and wondered why the gates at a tube station don't open, or come back and wonder why my Oyster card doesn't scan on the X51

I've tried using my Oyster card on NX Buses (unintentionally of course) and I can also confirm they don't work up here! ;)

Itís the 79E between Wolverhampton & Bilston right. From what I can see on the timetable, the longest round trip isnít more than 40 mins. For the PVR to be 6, it implies that there is a 20 minute drop back in the peak. Iím not familiar with routes on that side of the network but that seems excessive. If itís a 40 minute round trip at most, that would suggest a PVR of 4, at a frequency of every 10 minutes. Am I missing something?

Its 5.
