New safety announcement is driving London bus passengers to despair

As if Blue Monday wasn’t bad enough – officially the glummest day of the year – Transport for London have come up with a cunning wheeze to tip bus passengers over the edge.

It goes something like this.

That’s right, it’s an announcement telling passengers to ‘please hold on, the bus is about to move’.

Which would be irritating enough after every stop, but it’s even MORE IRRITATING when it never plays until the bus has already started moving.

Like this.

ARRRGGGGH!

And here’s what people made of it online.

Here’s what Transport for London had to say about it.

Not helping.

That’s not to say it’s a bad idea in principle.

But it needs some work. A lot of work.
