In their piece on Brisbane's new high-frequency inner-city bus corridor, the City Glider, the Brisbane Times found an especially insightful commenter:
However, property owner David Morris, who lives near the Orleigh Street bus terminal, said the late night services were excessive.
Mr Morris said very few people used the late night and early morning buses all the way to the terminal.
"The data shows that on average there is a bus arriving and departing from Hill End Bus Terminus at eight minute intervals in the early hours of the morning," he said.
"Typically a bus will arrive with a couple, or a group of three people, but then the next one, two or more buses will be empty, except of course for the driver and a security guard.
"The ratepayers of Brisbane and the taxpayers of Queensland are paying for a very expensive personal taxi service."
Yes, buses are usually empty at the end of the line! Who knew?
