Timetables too tight for buses?

Peter Barker wrote last week (March 16) about accidents on Eastbourne buses.

Recently I visited Ipswich. Each of the buses displayed a notice, “Please do not leave your seat until the bus has stopped. The driver will wait for you”.

The drivers also waited until everyone was seated before starting off again.

Local problems might not be entirely the fault of the drivers if the timetables that they have been set are too tight.

The solution might require slightly longer journey times.
