Patrick responds to news of First service changes

“More frequent buses on key routes will be a welcome improvement but First must not use this reorganisation as cover for cutting yet more peripheral bus routes that people rely on. Glasgow suffered this time last year when First cut or reduced dozens of services, and they admit that these new changes will see fewer miles covered. We need a public service that really serves all parts of our city.

“It’s clear from this latest decree that all the power is in the hands of the bus company, and very little is held by bus users. Two weeks of consultation is a worryingly short period for passengers to find out about these changes and make their views known.”
