@on_lothianbuses Thank you, I hope someone does something about the issue. I'll be happy once I get off this bus. Thanks for your time! @on_lothianbuses 554. Excessive heating a frequent problem on line 30, too. Environmental nightmare plus passengers all sweaty & miserable. @on_lothianbuses 34, near fountainbridge coming from Princes @on_lothianbuses Why is the heat blasting on this bus?!? Got to be at least 30°. Driver says he can't turn it off, I should open windows.
