Last summer at Hunter and James, where many southbound routes line up and the stop can get a little crowded, a bus with plenty of capacity hurried past the stop and failed to pick up passengers.

It was already a bit tiring transferring daily from train to bus at Aldershot.

Anyway getting left at the side of the road was the final push. While not everyone can do this, in my case, two weeks later I had converted an e-bike. Five months in, I'm up hundreds of dollars in saved Presto payments, but GO + HSR is still there if needed. But it's more convenient door-to-door to just bike.

As for the drivers - I have met all kinds over the years. Some simply wonderful and happy with their job. Others grouchy and immature. One downright childish. Some visibly tired but remaining courteous and professional. As is the case anywhere - many personality types mixed together. Most are good people and do their best in what I'm certain is a challenging environment at this time.
