Regent Street is closed for Christmas stuff.

As per fricking usual Abellio and Bus Route 3 falls over.

From Trafalgar Square in the last 30 minutes I have counted:

5 x 159
3 x 88
3 x 12
0 x 3

I deliberately held back to see if "the magic number" would ever appear.

For the life of me I don't know how we've been cursed by this transport operator. Has the 3 always been like this?

TFL can't tell me where my bus is except that there's one due in 23 minutes.

Rant Over. Getting the train tomorrow.

The stock answer is that traffic hold ups can have a significant effect, exacerbated by the length of the route which can cause bus bunching.

I have often waited 30 minutes for a 3 over the years - happily I rarely have to use them any more. Working in Pimlico at the mo I can buy a 'point to point' monthly travelcard from CP to Vauxhall that is quicker and more reliable than buses (generally) and wonderfully cheap at roughly £43 per month.

Hope you make it home soon!

I made it home. I am just really annoyed as last week bus basically decanted everyone at Herne Hill, to "regulate" the service. But that bus had stopped every 10 minutes for the same reason.
