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 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…

The only way to restore better services and restore accountability, and incompetent drivers, is to return them to public ownership, not giving them public subsidies which go straight into shareholders pockets the farce which is called “Simplicity” on Glasgow Firstbus nothing but another way to raise revenue from by making… Continue reading…

This morning my bus journey was held up for around 10 – 15 minutes by the driver being caught in a disagreement with two would be passengers. I was right at the front of the bus and stayed to observe the entire thing. The couple spoke very limited English and… Continue reading…

Can’t believe First MD Fiona Kerr! “I’m pleased we’ve been able to freeze many of our fares.” Really? How come most of your long suffering passengers are having their fares increased, some by £7 or more a month and services are still late or don’t show at all.… Continue reading…

The new First bus fare rises are a joke. Has the new MD learned NOTHING from her previous boss’ tenure. There is a causal link between bus prices and passenger numbers. They may have placated people for a few months with slightly reduced fares, but now they are ratcheting them… Continue reading…

One simple way to fix Greater Glasgow’s bus problem: central control. I work in London through the week. Here, Transport for London dictates routes and timetables.

We’ve reached a nadir folks. Planning to get the night bus home tonight. Turns out the monthly passes are now now longer valid on the night buses and you must pay separately for the journey. Luckily i had £2 on me. The number of people at the various stops who… Continue reading…

I’ve given up on buses since First Glasgow started shamelessly exploiting their monopoly on routes in this area with extortionate fares. Now, rather than walk the 110 yards from my front door to the bus stop in order to get to Glasgow, I’ll walk 3 miles to get the train… Continue reading…
