Re: New Bus Station
 
As from today, the Accrington bus station is open. :p and ALL of the bus companies are to use it.
They held an "Open Day" last Thursday, did YOU look round? What did you think?

As a driver, it will create a few problems. L.C.C. have thoughtfully put in a Drivers Room for us - They also have a ruling that no bus will be on the premises for more than 5 minutes:confused:

At least drivers are not being charged for using the toilets (unlike the passengers) :p All we have to do is queue up at the information desk, obtain 20p, go to the loo and wash/dry hands! Ah, even that might be a problem, we only have a max of 300 seconds to allow our passengers off and ticket those getting on, we (or the company) are likely to receive a reprimand should we exceed this time limit :o

Does anyone live near to the bus station and have a large parking area outside their house? I am in need of somewhere to park my 32 ft. bus at lunchtimes with adequate toilet facilities and with close proximity to food stores etc :rolleyes:

Good or bad, we are stuck with it :rolleyes:

I have just been past about half n hour back, was completely empty no buses, no people, possibly another HBC success?:D

I think that they chose a Sunday to open because there is virtually no service today. If it is a disaster tomorrow, they can rightly say " Well, it ran smoothly yesterday:confused:" :D

Who is actually going to enforce the rules at the new bus station ?

You can always come and park outside my shop at lunchtime, it will make a change from 10,000 Pilky buses queued up at the same time :)

Yeh you got to be a good guesser,:D;) Yeh would have thought at least for an initial period they woulda manned it? but that takes sense, sadly lacking with yon lot.

Re: New Bus Station
 
with th e way some folk acted at the old bus station you would think at the new one they would be encouraging people to use a toilet not charge them for it

No doubt HBC will soon be announcing that Peel Street toilets will be closing.:eek:

At the last Chamber Of Trade meeting we were told there are no plans to close them yet by a councillor on Miles Parkinsons say so.

The market manager is hell bent on closing them to save costs.

That means they will probably close tomorrow. Famous last words when we campaigned to keep them open last time, 'They will never close on Labours watch'

The market manager was a complete ******, when i worked yon in me teens, seems nothings changed.:rolleyes:

Thank you Lancsdave but the rumours are that they intend building a car park there :o Any truth in that do you know?
Did you notice that the council were filling in dints with tarmac on Friday outside your shop? Bit late for buses :confused:
