Yes, the buses are a bad joke

I LIVE in Bangor and I have to agree that Translink is a joke (Write Back, December 21/22).

We get the bus home sometimes from Bangor in the afternoon, but sometimes we won't bother, as I'm a blind person and don't want to stand.

The schoolkids take them over and, of course, they are single-deckers and sometimes even the wee small ones. I know for a fact that they've double-deckers, but they don't use them.

Plus, often I have gone for a bus and it hasn't turned up. When we've gone for them at the station, they leave before their time.

I think it's time Translink got its act together and gave us who pay their wages proper services.
