Hi everyone

Tonight i used 363 from worcester sixth form to sidbury near bath road. The bus app tell me it going there and i ding the bell. Then the bus goes staight passed the stop and i did not get off until McDonald's in worcester. I knew this may happen as she passed many other stop on the london road. I would have not been able to make my connection to kempsey as the bus did not stop. I then told the driver and walk off quite angryly. Has this happened to you

Hi Matty,

Unfortunately this can happen from time to time. It was a consistent problem for us when we first moved here and the buses refused to stop at a particular bus stop on Newtown Road. We then found out that the stop had been taken out of use, but they had not updated their timetables or put a notice on the stop to inform users. Further to this the drivers we queried about the missed stop were unhelpful and sometimes quite rude.

My best advice is to politely enquire with the driver that the missed stop is still in use. This will bring to their attention that you wanted to be dropped there, you will find out if the stop is still in service and you have confronted them in a polite manner without losing your temper. Because if you lose your temper, you lose the argument.

Best of luck, and let us know if it happens again.
