The Anonymous Widower

The Only Disadvantage Of London’s Two Door Wheelchair-Accessible Buses

Tonight I took the bus to the Angel to get some money and have some supper at Carluccio’s.

I had a lamb shank, which was excellent, as was my handling of the carving of the meat from the bone.  The last time I had one in Liverpool, soon after my stroke, I made a complete mess of the operation.  So I must be doing something right!

Catching the bus back was very easy and as soon as I got to the stop in the Essex Road, a 56 arrived to take me home.

The only problem was the cold weather, which meant that when a lady in a wheelchair backed it out of the bus down the ramp under the middle door, the time taken allowed an awful lot of cold air to get in through the open door.

But if that is all that we’ll have to live with because of full wheelchair access to the buses, I don’t think we have much to complain about.

Could this be the reason that the North and Manchester in particular doesn’t have second middle doors on their buses? The extra door will let much more awful cold and wet weather in to annoy the other passengers.
