The focus of user’s comments rightly appears mainly to be on service timetables and prices.

I visit both London and Dublin quite regularly and feel that in terms of pricing and paying fares, their public transport systems work really well. I think this is down to the regulation of public transport. Glasgow has so many independent operators that travelling from one side of the city… Continue reading…

We run a small bus group over in East Lothian campaigning for better rural bus services: RELBUS. There is a mix here of good, indifferent and bad. Poor connectivity and low services levels in some areas, opaque fares, dirty and old stop infrastructure, lousy information, noisy clunky old buses means… Continue reading…

I live in Garrowhill and work at Glasgow Royal Infirmary. The 213 service was replaced with the 38E under simplicity. At first the new service was okay, but now the 38E is very rarely on time , and Firstbus have reverted to their old practice of using older less reliable… Continue reading…

Simple things would greatly improve bus services. For example more convenient times, the 4 bus From the avenue shopping centre comes at ridiculous times 5.01. No use for 5pm finishers 5.34 no use for 5.30 finishers. 6.08 is not much use for 6pm finishers. Making these buses sensible times like… Continue reading…

I see that First have put their Glasgow MD ‘out to pasture’ according to the Herald. This is potentially one of the most significant events in Glasgow transport over the past while. It seems Ronnie Park, who I think did a pathetic job of managing First (I say this as… Continue reading…

I use trains more than buses for various reasons: 1. There are usually less shouty and sweary people (drug users and drunk teenage girls in particular), it can be very overbearing when you have children with you. 2.
