And can you explain what exactly "defective train" means? I've heard this excuse 9 times already this year as to why TFL have made me late for meetings.

fortunately for you all I am informed about my numbers. On a positive note performance is increasing and will especially skyrocket, hopefully, with Crossrail taking over many routes and eventually leading to the pedestrianisation of Oxford St

Sorry, but in our Internet age "b****ing" is easy checkable.

I used to take route 10 from Oxford Street very often during my time in London.

Here is performance for this route:

http://bus.data.tfl.gov.uk/boroughre...e-route-10.pdf

Come on, 30 sec waiting time and 98% performance mileage operated, come on give me a break "90 min waiting in front of Selfridge, my a**"

I dare you to find me the route with worst performance: http://content.tfl.gov.uk/bus-route-...-a4-261014.pdf

You have to check the actual mileage lost to traffic delays between two points, not the actual covered mileage over the whole route (the non-diverted buses).

Either way, 90 minutes is clearly a figure of speech that non-literates might potentially not get.

Performance is increasing, but the configuration of the bus network along Oxford St is dated, and soon about to change.
