What people have said so far (Glasgow)

It is confusing for people especially individuals with learning difficulties. I wish First Bus take account of vulnerable people instead of concerned about making profits.… Continue reading…

The only way to restore better services and restore accountability, and incompetent drivers, is to return them to public ownership, not giving them public subsidies which go straight into shareholders pockets the farce which is called “Simplicity” on Glasgow Firstbus nothing but another way to raise revenue from by making… Continue reading…

Can’t believe First MD Fiona Kerr! “I’m pleased we’ve been able to freeze many of our fares.” Really? How come most of your long suffering passengers are having their fares increased, some by £7 or more a month and services are still late or don’t show at all.… Continue reading…

One simple way to fix Greater Glasgow’s bus problem: central control. I work in London through the week. Here, Transport for London dictates routes and timetables. Bus companies run services under contract for TfL. Companies which fail to run to schedule risk losing the right to run services. Guess what:… Continue reading…

We’ve reached a nadir folks. Planning to get the night bus home tonight. Turns out the monthly passes are now now longer valid on the night buses and you must pay separately for the journey. Luckily i had £2 on me. The number of people at the various stops who… Continue reading…

Too add to my earlier post… I also noted that all of the First buses have adverts inside the buses advertising ‘full day tickets’ and various ticketing options that offer ‘unlimited’ travel. There is no small print on these adverts to indicate these ticket options are not valid on evening… Continue reading…

I’ve given up on buses since First Glasgow started shamelessly exploiting their monopoly on routes in this area with extortionate fares. Now, rather than walk the 110 yards from my front door to the bus stop in order to get to Glasgow, I’ll walk 3 miles to get the train… Continue reading…

Since First Bus took over from Strathclyde Public Transport and became the major bus company operating in Glasgow and the surrounding areas they have systematically dismantled (without consultation) the bus service throughout the city. They have redirected many bus routes adding precious time to journeys, they have removed the bus… Continue reading…

More pram/wheelchair/flexible spaces! In Brighton (also a city, remember) the buses have a large number of flexible spaces that can be used for prams, wheelchair users; there are fold-down seats if required. Plus WHY when we have laws about accessibility are there still buses with steps up to them? It’s… Continue reading…

A better pricing system would make more sense – most drivers interrogate you about where you’re going if you ask for a 90p fare as it’s such a short distance, so surely it would make more sense to have a short journey fare which actually allows for a decent length… Continue reading…
