Re: Private Bus Observations 2020

Melbourne has about 20 Bustechs (with CDC), a tiny proportion in a fleet of about 1,100.

The 7 of them that CDC Vic ...

Getting on a stuffed bus, where people absolutely refuse to sit directly next to each other although it's stuffed and wouldn't hurt anybody in the end, and people refuse to move up to the high floor.

1. Any morning where the temperature is in single digits makes me feel very well, as opposed it seems to the majority of Aus.
