Fri 28 April - Good again...
I need to come into the office on Saturday and would normally come in by train. But I see this on the Metlink website
Saturday, 29 April 2006:
Buses will depart Sandringham every half-hour from 4.34am until 6.34am, then every 20 minutes from 6.54am to 7.34pm and then at regular intervals from 7.52pm until 11.32pm.
So you turn up at Ripponlea and wait from zero to twenty minutes for a bus, with no idea when it might arrive. Then you'll alight at South Yarra and wait for some extra period of time to connect to a train that will be running to a completely independent timetable.
It's not hard to see this trip taking an hour door-to-door. Compared to 15 minutes in the car, I think I'll drive thanks!
And if the works are at Middle Brighton, why not shuttle trains between the city and North Brighton?
Home on the 18:24 and it scrapes in for a green.
