Great letter, Roger.
Giving them the benefit of the doubt, can you see where the current
timetable works like a charm for some other combinations of bus-changes? It
would make a good project for a CompSci class (cue TomW) to design the best
Before my daughter got her full driving licence, she used to take the
VicRail train to Geelong and miss the bus to Deakin Uni by 3 minutes. The
next one was something like 45 minutes later, so she often called on her
brother or classmates to give her a lift. This apparent craziness made more
sense when we saw the tiny bus stop on a narrow road at the Geelong campus
and how it could not sustain several buses all arriving at once. These buses
went to other destinations in Geelong and the one for the railway station
had to get its own time slot and not stuff up the other buses.
