I've been noticing a lot of graffiti around the place...
...all over the Interchanges (specifically Woden)...
...and on 818 in Woden depot
Just to update what I had said there, the graffiti on Wodens roof is still there... and it was all 4 of the broken buses near the Athllon gate at woden depot - 818, 300, 995, or whatever the other was. It would appear that someone made a somewhat effort to wash it off, but instead just smudged it out leaving a grey mess, which does not look nice.
I'll have to find out exactly which bus it was when this happened last year, unless it's the same one, but hopefully after this morning the driver of bus 593 reported the problem with his buses bike rack and windscreen wipers - the problem where ... the handlebar of someones bike can jam the movement of the door-side windscreen wiper because it is leaning too far toward the buses window.
Now that I think of it, that's another issue with the bucket racks, something I shall mention to ACTION next time I call them.
The reason I say that, is because of the arm that the bucket racks use, it pulls the front wheel of a bike closer towards the front of the bus more than the arm of the yellow racks do.
I've had this issue before (as I mention above), some time last year on the way home from woden on a Euro 6 bus on the weekend when it was raining.
Basically what happens is, when the bike is lodged into place, it'll lean against the front window due to the arm angle, and when the wiper is activated by the driver, it'll likely move up, but when it comes back down, it gets stopped by the handlebar of the bike - and it is really tough to get it unstuck
