Frequency (March)

The equinoxes and lunar cycle are observable patterns. Moves to regularise the date of Easter will not happen in anyone’s lifetime. For these reasons Maundy Thursday sometimes falls in March. This morning’s voiceover on the No. 96 to St. Kilda Beach introduced a new word to Public Transport Speak. ‘Trams will operate according to a Sunday frequency on Good Friday. On Easter Monday trams will operate according to a Saturday frequency.’ Instead of timetable we now have frequency. This doesn’t inspire confidence. It reminded me of this morning’s online weather report, with promise of showers ‘less likely’ in the afternoon.
