What Transport for London tell you and what Southeastern tell you are two very different things.
The Oystercard website – exposing the underbelly of your technology is not necessarily what’s best for your users
I've learned that the Oystercard website is quite bad for tracking all this stuff - a fact that amazes me.
Is the tube actually getting better? More reliable? Less problematic? Every time you get stuck in a tunnel, the tuts and sighs come out like nothing has changed. So I guess most people would say no.
As you might know if you're in London, three London bus routes are about to be converted from bendy buses to a mixture of single deckers and double deckers. And I was very interested to come across two PDFs published by Transport for London regarding the conversions.
I can still remember the reaction when I took my mother on a Routemaster bus for the first time. It was of surprise, slightly of bemusement and much of wonder. "This is like buses used to be when I was a child" was along the lines of what she said as we sat on the top deck in 2001.
There's a point in everyones life where they leave something important in their trousers when they're bunged in a washing machine, which is why my Oystercard now has a noticeable bent in it.
