You have just arrived at Finsbury Park Station and you are late for a hot date at Karmenz, so late in fact that you lazily decide to get the bus to the stop outside Woody's. You come out of the station and to your suprise all three bus types are coming round the corner and pulling up at the stand with their doors open to passengers. Each bus has the same length of queue with an equal number of faffers to non faffers, buggies etc, and you are positioned equidistant from each bus (you have just bought two bunches of daffs for your date from the vegetable lady).
Which bus do you opt for and why?
Some of us don't function highly enough to notice there isn't a walking option!
This is the reason for the poll - I believe that the W7 is the nastiest bus on the planet because it waits round the corner, then waits on the stand, then lets the passengers on and waits a bit more and you've got on because you're in a mad rush and you really want the W3 and you're standing there waiting and meanwhile a W3 pops up and whooshes off before you can clamber past all the faffers and buggies to get off.
At the walkers, oh come on, the road isn't that congested, and this is a really hot date.
I'd also walk, sorry!
But otherwise W3, because it's my normal bus and old habits die hard. I've recently started experimenting with the 210 to drop me on Hornsey Road at the end of Fairbridge Road. But there are a higher than normal number of drunks/smelly people on that bus I've found.
I'm not going to comment, I might sound like Christian O'Connell.
And katiejane, how do you know I'm a he?
The stop by the nutter church (ex Rainbow) is the worst of all the FP stops, the 29s often speed past there without bothering to stop.
I live just the other side of Ossian Road on FPR and always walk to/from FP.
Given the choice, I'd probably choose W7 as they're more frequent and seem quicker. But I think the W3 is more pleasant. 210 is just a bit weird.
Because someone could be arsed to look for an existing thread that fulfilled their requirements.
And while we're here, can anyone recommend a doctor/dentist/plumber?
Whats it like driving a bus @ Martin 23?
