Week 34, SL (and rest of Sweden if not
have already done so) switches from summer timetable to winter
timetable. The general definition of that is the increase in traffic and
in most cases also the traveling time between place A to B depending on
the specific situation.
But changing to the winter timetable also
mean changes made, like this. From August 21st 2006, Swebus has taken
over Kallhällsgaraget, formally ran by Connnex. As it happened, Swebus
bought some 80 (and more) MAN buses, about half half regarding
articulated and not articulated. And that day, August 21st 2006, I was
in the Kallhäll region in order to document the change. Like usual, the
first day will always be a bit rough no matter the what you are doing.
However, I felt they did pretty good on the first day until at
Kungsängen when I was planning to take 557. There, their brand new 6506
broke down, which was scheduled to run to Sigtuna and back. The
consequence followed by this was that the departure to and from Sigtuna
was cancelled so passengers had to wait some one hour and thirty minutes
for the next bus, which only goes up to Håtuna kyrka, approxiamately 20
minutes away from Sigtuna, and for those going to Sigtuna or the stretch
between Håtuna and Sigtuna, well...
