For years and years I have talked up the shuttle bus service to and from the Round-Up Grounds to out-of-town guests, but this year I am totally embarrassed at it. They seem to run on “Round To It Time.” In other words, the bus seems to come to Washington School every 90 minutes or so instead of once or twice an hour. What’s worse, it’s the same bus and the same driver.

The bus company is getting compensated for the service. I’ll bet it’s probably not 100 percent; however, they are making some money off the service so they should be able to to provide more than one bus every 90 minutes. If the Round-Up Association is paying for the service, they got taken.

I suggest that next year that there be at least two buses running 20 minutes apart or three buses running 15 minutes apart so that people don’t have to stand and wait, get upset and bad-mouth the bus service.
