Bus price hikes are top concern of Glasgow travellers
The finding comes as First Group hike fares this week by a massive 50 per cent for child all day tickets and 28 per cent for singles. Later this month a severe reduction in services will cut off many neighbourhoods in the city.
The survey is part of the Better Buses campaign launched last week by Patrick Harvie, the Green MSP for Glasgow.
Mr Harvie said:
“The initial results of the Better Buses survey back up what many constituents have told me in recent months – there is no attempt to consult them before services are cut or fares are jacked up.
“Private operators have a track record of behaving like the buses are their personal enterprise when in fact they are a vital public service.
“I look forward to receiving more comments via the Better Buses website and on Twitter so I can help the bus users of Glasgow build a case for better regulation, better services and better prices.”
