Today, First changed their routes and to the ‘surprise’ of many, a good number of people were confused and got lost. This reminded me of how I felt when I first came from Berlin to Glasgow four years ago and tried to use the buses. I was used to going… Continue reading…

I’m rather unimpressed at First Glasgow’s ‘rationalisation’ of the bus routes. The strategy seems to be to increase the number of buses going along main roads (oh, sorry, that should be ‘corridors’ as First are calling them) which were already well-served, combined with a reduction in areas which had pretty… Continue reading…

Yesterday I stood at the stop shown as CC in the new FirstBus Map and Guide as a stop for the new 38C (prev. 36). When the bus arrived (10min. late) it almost didn’t stop as the driver drove slightly past indicating that this wasn’t the correct bus stop. When… 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…

It is confusing for people especially individuals with learning difficulties. I wish First Bus take account of vulnerable people instead of concerned about making profits.… Continue reading…

I live in Ayr and I only use my local bus service occasionally. This is mainly due to it’s frequency (twice an hour), it’s time keeping (it’s sometimes early and other times 10/15 minutes late, and cost. The cost is a big issue for me, it’s £2.65 single for a… 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…

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… Continue reading…

I see that First have put their Glasgow MD ‘out to pasture’ according to the Herald. This is potentially one of the most significant events in Glasgow transport over the past while. It seems Ronnie Park, who I think did a pathetic job of managing First (I say this as… Continue reading…
