255 bus issues

jammed busIs this an answer for the problem?

The 255 bus seems to be encountering ever more difficulties. Lone Pine is a particular problem because of parking on either side of an already narrow street.

Today, a bus was trapped half way along (not sure exactly why) and traffic entering at both ends piled up. The situation rapidly developed into one that couldn’t easily be resolved, as school buses were lined up in Eddy, and there was no room for cars to reverse out of Lone Pine.

Possible solutions? Difficult. One option would be to permit parking on one side only (residents without off-street parking would be upset). Another would be to widen on the western side (also probably upsetting residents).

The concern is that State Transport will axe the service because would-be passengers will give up, giving ammunition in the form of declining patronage to those who would like to axe it for cost reasons.
