The 10 mins / 5 mins frequency seems great when compared to most railway, until we find the busses bunch up then overtake at stops and you get 3 busses every 30 mins and 25 minsute gap in between....

For the poor buggers that don't get it, the facts may not be entierly accurate, but from what I can remember:

"More" was set up in early last year IIRC and was a step forword to buses in the Poole - Bounmouth Corridor. It replaced about 8 routes (well, M1/2) which all ran along roughly the same route. They bought around 30 new volvo eclipses to do the M1 & M2, along with another 3 routes of a similar kind, only up to Tower Park area. IT has proved so unrealiable. Nearly all the buses have recieved re-paneling or even been sent back to ROI to get practically rebuilt. Anyway, because it is so unreliable, the locals nickname it "Less" instead of "More"

Footnote: Salisburys delivery of the Volvos was much more well cared for, with only 1 being damaged badly.

Ok time for me to step in.
TC taking the **** out of MORE is bang out of order.
These started to run up my way a few months back and are great,fast,cheap and a lifeline.
From my house:
Yellow buses - town/Boscombe :pukerigh: or Christchurch every 15 minutes.
More - Poole/station/town every 10 minutes and cheaper then yellow buses.

A lot of people with pushchairs and weelchairs use these because they are easy to get on and off then the yellow buses so provide a lifeline for disadvantaged people.

More have changed my life. :rolleyes:

From here:-

Yellow Buses - Town, or Muscliffe or Bomo Hospital
More - Poole, Station and Town - cheaper than Yellow and more frequent.

Point is though, 'more' don't turn up that frequently, ok its every 10 minutes, but that's if the bus appears. Once I had to wait 30 mins and then three buses appeared... ok, yes it is hard to regulate the bus service, but they were literally racing!

Well, the reason we broke them, was becuase we were 1st to wash them & found errors with the wash washing the mirrors

It isn't broke as such though, still in service, unlike 1/2 the Volvo's were at 1 point down your end
