  1. This is confirmed to run on 18 March ? Any idea what is the colour of this Private Bus Operator ? Thank you so much for your service!

  2. The bus is always so inconsistent.
    Coming earlier then the stated time of 7.30,
    it has happened more then 3 times already.
    Where as the 7.40 bus seems to take their time.
    It would be good if they fix this
