No, contrary to popular belief, I don't do them and never have.
I am talking about Bender's Bus Lines of Geelong.
When we were in Geelong a couple of weeks ago, I noticed a few buses around and I wondered what the service was like. I have finally got around to checking and there seems to be two bus companies who service Geelong. Ok, out of curiosity I will check what the service is like for Highton where my sister lives. She lives just off a main road and her abode would be over ten years old, so it is a newish area but not that new. New houses are being built there by the day.
To my surprise, there does not seem to be a bus service at all.
The above is incorrect. There is a bus service near to my sister's. I reckon I spent fifty minutes on the net and with a street directory before I found it. Admittedly my knowledge of Geelong streets is poor, but I think Benders might be able to do a bit better with their website.
For my sister once I traced all the old Geelong tram routes onto a map so that she could see where they went. She was surprised to see that there was a direct tram to the school where she taught, but otherwise not very interested. Oh well, it was a bit of fun.
This investigation came about because her g/f has been transferred to the north of Victoria and my sister intends spending some time with her, although still remain living in Geelong. The bone doctor has forbade her from driving such a long way with little Joanna when she is not getting a proper night's sleep, so she will have to get the train and she needs to get to the station first and I wondered if the bus was practical. I expect she will cadge a lift or get a taxi.
