Forewarned is forearmed.

Many people will be left stranded at bus stops waiting for buses that are not coming.  This will add to the growing community rage against Bus Queensland and mediocrity generally.

Well done all!   :fp:

Westside and Park Ridge industrial action delays

Good Morning,

Be advised planned industrial action Westside and Park Ridge buses today.

Details >> http://translink.com.au/service-updates/98701

Westside buses service the Ipswich and Springfield area. Park Ridge buses service parts of the Browns Plains and Logan area.

There is already a lot of community concern with the ramshackle bus service particularly around Ipswich and Springfield and today's action will no doubt see more beleaguered punters left stranded at bus stops waiting for buses that will not be arriving.  Children left stranded may be at risk.

What on Earth is going on? It sounds like there is more to the story than what is public!
Negative people... have a problem for every solution.

It certainly is not helping build confidence in bus reliability, to say the least!
