  1. In reference to STA buses, the bus timetable change of December 2020, is a complete and utter joke. For example for residents, in between west of DeeWhy and French’s Forest, our buses have been totally shred to.peices . We demand a better service than we currently are getting. This whole STA planning is a disaster. Heads need to role for causing such a problem.
