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. People still continue on occasions to smoke upstairs 3. It’s cheaper to travel with kids on trains as with one adult you get two kids traveling free. The difference can be quite substantial. 4. Often the bus can be unbearably warm, especially in the summer Also the bus transfer from my local train station often turns around as quick as it possibly can that often people don’t get the chance to even try and get on the bus. This is not an isolated incident!
