Just another reason to dislike Connex...

Connex is the company who run the trains throughout metropolitan Melbourne. Yes, our “public” transport is “privatised”. Unfortunately. Trains are cancelled and delayed on a regular basis, and even if the existing timetable were adhered to it would still be insufficient. Melbournians are well-used to griping at Connex.

But last night, for approximately two hours, no trains at all were running through the City Loop. AT PEAK TIME, no less. I found out the hard way that there is no bus to my suburb from the city, and had to wait for the trains to start again.

Oh well, it was a little adventure in my otherwise tedious workday!
