That's an interesting comment Ann! I could have sworn that buses were actually fitted with doors, 'stop' buttons and that the Island had a liberal smattering of novelty statues known as 'bus stops'. Or were you unaware that to allow the driver of a bus to facilitate alighting you have to press the little red 'stop' button situated on poles within the bus?

Let us hope that things will improve and buses will stop at bus stops for passengers to alight, unlike the present situation!
