North East Scotland
Over the course of a few years the bus service in the North of Scotland has been dramatically reduced. The irregularity of the service has made it increasingly difficult for people to use the bus service to go to work or attend appointments and has subsequently encouraged people to use their cars. The cost of using the bus is very high, and completely unaffordable for young people and families. This is ridiculous when it is among young people that there is the biggest demand for buses within my community. The cost rises dramatically every year. If the service were to become more regular and prices be set at a more stable level, I believe demand for and usage of the bus would rise dramatically.
