The big plan for better buses
Buses I can afford to use for my regular journeys and that makes bus travel the obvious option when travelling to work, the shops, school and for a night out.
The cost of catching the bus is just one of the things that can put people off leaving their cars at home, and prices in Glasgow are much higher than in many cities. Those who can afford to buy a pass up-front can often get a good deal, but individual tickets are much more expensive. It’s unfair that people on low incomes, or who only use the bus a few times a week, have to pay so much more.
Bus companies can put the price up whenever they want and there is no limit to how much they can charge. There is no need for consultation with the Commissioner for Transport, SPT, and certainly not with you, the passengers.
How do you feel about the cost of the buses? Would you like to see cheaper fares, or tickets that integrate better with other forms of transport? Or here’s a radical idea – how about buses that give change?
