What people have said so far (Glasgow)

I am pleased to see that you are studying the current bus service provision in Glasgow. My concern is not so much with reliability (although this may be a problem elsewhere) but the constant well above inflation ratcheting up of costs. Increasing the fare from Yorkhill to the City Centre… Continue reading…

I think the exact change only system makes buses inconvenient and can force people to take other more expensive and less environmentally friendly options like cabs or cars. I understand that it saves time and interaction with the driver (which I presume is a driver safety thing?) but would a… Continue reading…
