Tue 16 May - I can handle this...

The 07:14 arrives at Ripponlea about three minutes late this morning - consequently we pull into Flinders Street three minutes late. No, it didn't completely ruin my life, I'm sure I'll learn to deal with it after a few months of the appropriate therapy.

Home on the 18:01 and, by the most amazing coincidence, it's also three minutes late into Ripponlea.

Would you like to calculate how much time Connex has wasted your life?

I'd be intrigued to find out how many years it is...

Then multiply this with my charge rate and I can tell you right now that it has some significant financial impact on me in non billable time to that level that I am selling up and moving into town. Goodbye Connex.

Altough the economic impact due to lost tax revenue must be much higher.

Too bad for those who cannot afford the to buy in the City.

Bye to Connex; say hello to Yarra Trams!

Out of trivia: Docklands wouldn't be too bad to invest in now. Come ten years, and a change in government operations you might see tram finally coming down from Collins Street.

Not even Yarra Trams. My aim is to walk to work!

Just found an article on The Age.
Be prepared for more delays:
CONNEX, the operator of Melbourne's suburban trains, has warned commuters to expect delays and cancelled trains for the remainder of the month....

And this made me laugh:
"Connex is committed to being open, honest and accountable," a company spokesman said.

Open and honest?????? Where did they found this spokesman?

For the full article go here.

Are we all imagining our trials on public transport?


No mention of whether this is a Connex-sponsored stunt......
