Last count over 800 signatures.
Safeway at Hunter’s Tryst have accepted the petition, hopefully I’ll get a good few more signatures.
Last night on the way to the Gyle I came accross yet another person who didn’t know the 18 wasn’t going the full route at 7pm.
I’ve managed to install Subversion. Not yet managed to get it fully up and running yet though, as I can’t find the libraries for Apache 2.
I’ve done some more counting. I currently have 810 signatures. Eventually I’ll get there.
I found these minutes of the Tranport commitee.
Neil Renilson and Bill Campbell answering questions.
Some very interesting comments were made.
After all this junk mail that I got from Hotmail claiming that it was going to increase the space to 250MB, it has now happened.
I’ve just noticed that Lycos Freemail has 300 MB of space instead of the 10 MB before,
I’ve done a bit of counting over the weekend. I have now collected over 640 signatures, with the help of various people/companies.
I have a funny feeling that we’ll be able to convince Lothian Buses at some point.
Yet again this morning I came accross a few more folk who are fed up with the 18.
On of whom just doen’t understand where Lothian Buses gets their figures from, as every Sunday on her way to work, the 18 was full, of others going to work. Her travelling time has trebled now, that she can’t take just noe direct bus.
Yesterday I got on the second last 18, it only goes part route to Clovenstone, so I change at Westside Plaza and take a 3 or 33. Further the was a couple of girls who did not realise that the bus was only going part route. One of whom was going to Oxgangs, the other to Craigour. They ended up having to go via the city centre, which they were not too chuffed about, as they thought it was not sensible to have to go into the city centre just to go back out again. It just shows you that there obviously is some demand for this service.
I now have just over 400 signatures.
