Patrick, I was looking at first bus’ website. The return ticket is apparently non-refundable, even if First fail to provide a service and cancel buses for whatever reason. How can they get away with such an exploitative T&C?… Continue reading…

The fact you need the exact change every time you go on a bus is ridiculous. It puts me off going on the buses at all. Is it not possible to have drivers give passengers change, as is the case in most other ‘cosmopolitan’ cities? Also, the fares seem completely… Continue reading…

I recently used the Lothian bus service in Edinburgh and found them of a much greater standard (cleanliness, frequency, efficiency, friendliness of drivers, value, comfort etc. etc.) than the First buses in Glasgow. I wish they could operate in Glasgow to challenge the apparent monopoly of bus routes First currently… Continue reading…

Thanks for writing to FirstBus recently, particularly about student discounts.  I suspect they will reply as they have on Twitter – they will tell you that the adult first4week card is discounted to £48.50 for those under 20 (including school students). However, my argument is about FirstCard – since December… Continue reading…

Although First and GCC have made a bad situation worse with unfair fairs and a what seems to be a monopoly; buses were always going to be difficult in Glasgow with the awkward road infrastructure in the city centre (compounded again by the inner city ring road). Perhaps we need… Continue reading…

I want ALL 38 services to use the same bus stops, no matter what company provides the service. And I want this principle applied across ALL services where there is a choice of bus company. Time for better rationalisation of stops. If any bus is going Union St-Shawlands, then we… Continue reading…

I am pleased to see that you are studying the current bus service provision in Glasgow. My concern is not so much with reliability (although this may be a problem elsewhere) but the constant well above inflation ratcheting up of costs. Increasing the fare from Yorkhill to the City Centre… Continue reading…

I could not believe my eyes when I saw the letter from the Director of First Bus Glasgow. It will be interesting to see what his survey says. Do we think he will be willing to share it? Who are these people who conduct the survey and who do they… Continue reading…

Our buses are an embarrassment to our city, our people, and our tourists. I travel in buses every day and mostly find that the driver is grumpy, the bus is dirty and the suspension has gone. Please make our buses worthy of our people and tourists, people will be proud… Continue reading…

Why do drivers drive pass me with my child buggy, am I not to get the bus?  I think you should have inspectors on all buses would help the driver with bad customers and help the bus users with bags, buggies and stop the driver from running red lights everyday… Continue reading…
