I am a wheelchair using mother, who uses a power chair, and who takes her toddler with her on her lap. As you can imagine, getting out and about takes a lot of energy and skill. I have several health conditions that mean I am exhausted and in constant pain.… Continue reading…

Stop larger companies holding a monopoly over routes. i.e. First Buses. Provide better mobile phone apps to give up to the minute bus services, times, and numbers. Use double, not single decker buses on routes and at times where there is clearly a higher demand based on numbers forced to… Continue reading…

I use trains more than buses for various reasons: 1.

People still continue on occasions to smoke upstairs 3. It’s cheaper to… Continue reading…

First’s “simpliCITY” drive has just done away with the leg of the #9 service that links the city centre to the west end, meaning there’s now no direct bus link between the south-west of Glasgow where I live and the West End where I work. Their suggestion is that I… Continue reading…

More frequent service on the new 4a route. When half hourly waiting time can be prohibitive especially when one fails to arrive. A shorter route might make for more reliability in keeping to timetable too. Maybe some improvement in springing of older bus stock. Can get very bumpy.… Continue reading…
