What bugs me as much as irregular bus/train frequency, is people who refuses who move to the back of the bus and people whip refuse to move to the centre of trains.
They argue that they won’t be able to alight, yet give them a seat deep in middle of the train car and lo and behold, squeezing out isn’t a problem.
For buses I personally think people are just inconsiderate. Moving in benefits everyone but yourself, so why should I move in?
I have a theory that public transport users are predominantly female adults and dependents. While you do see men taking public transport, in Singapore its bias against working age men. Because the value of time for working age men is higher? Because their income is higher?
In any case want there something fundamentally wrong if our public transport planning design and operation is done primarily by men?
Just a thought…
