So our company just moved to the soul less place of a shithole that is Canary Wharf which means an extra 20 minutes ride and also that I have to pay for parking. A daily pass is £2 and so I called up about a monthly pass…this is great
Daily pass £2 x 226 (251 working days less 25 days holiday) = £452
Monthly pass: £40.85 x 12 = £490.20
where the hell is the logic in that ? and for the monthly pass you need to give a months notice of cancellation, so if you leave your job you could potentially pay for a month you arent there.
does anyone know of any free parking in the Wharf ?
There are some free parking spaces out side over South Quay area but I have not used them as prefer to use the underground car parks. Dont know what’s wrong with working in Canary Wharf I love it (no I am not in banking)
dont how you can like it…its soul less…the transport sucks…dlr and jubilee is all you have…you have to pay to park …the bars and pubs have no character…all the people look the same…but apart from that its great
As I ride bike in dont use DLR/Jubilee that often but when I do need it (and I have to go to different parts of London) I find it gets me to all places I need to be quite easily and quickly.There is a lot of bars/pubs with character - you just need to know where to go other then whats in front of you. Yes I will agree majority of the people look the same but not all of us are in banking. If you hate it that much get a new job in an area you like. Personally I could not work in the city as I feel they are all insurance dicks (other half excluded of course) :PIt can be quite fun here, just need the right people and the right places to go too.Good luck
