Typical of a privatised monopoly. 18% increase in the cost of my 4 weekly ticket. They can do what they like. So much for public transport. The Scottish government needs to look a the cost of free unlimited transport throughout Scotland if the only way to pay for it is by allowing the bus companies to hike up the fares whenever they feel like it. I am so angry. My salary keeps going down but the bus fares keep going up. Surely there should be some control on the fare increase.
