This situation may not be unique for Britain; it may be familiar in other countries where Romanians would like to emigrate to.
It’s very likely that they are mainly European countries, although such precision is possible in the USA, whilst it is not uncommon in Australia, irrespective of the huge distances.
But I loved the way buses in Brighton, and in London as well, came on time with utmost precision, and the fact that you knew exactly how many minutes you were supposed to wait.
Buses in Glasgow were also fairly punctual, but I haven’t noticed any electronic billboards like in London, and surely not in some the remote areas of the city that I had been to.
I would have surely needed them, in order to know the number and destination of the arriving bus. Otherwise I had to ask a Glaswegian-speaking driver three times what bus it was, and still not be sure if I understood well :-(
This is a truly ‘good Brit example’… If only other things in today’s British society were as precise as buses coming right on schedule!
