I totally applaud Patrick Harvie’s motion. It is a disgrace that the Scottish Government has no mechanism to check bus reliability despite the fact that they had a published target!! Something has to be done about the appalling service that First provide to Glasgow which has the largest percentage of… Continue reading…

1. Why don’t First Bus have proper downloadable route maps on their website(like Lothian Bus do)? Do First not realise that we want to find out the route of the service so we can decide which one to use? (the First website has no info on routes through central Glasgow)… Continue reading…

I think the exact change only system makes buses inconvenient and can force people to take other more expensive and less environmentally friendly options like cabs or cars. I understand that it saves time and interaction with the driver (which I presume is a driver safety thing?) but would a… Continue reading…

At a crowded bus shelter you have to peer past lots of people to read the timetables. Could I suggest having the bus routes and times on the back of shelters too.… Continue reading…

Get rid of/have members of the public on SPT First Bus has too many routes. Wider routes for buses serving hospitals. Actually going in to the hospital, not like saying No 34 goes to Southern General when in actual fact you have to through an underpass, cross a busy road,… Continue reading…

first up the last fares increase was ridiculous- i can see the idea was to simplify it but its now more expensive to get the bus into town than the tube- pay more to take longer isnt going to encourage anyone. its inflexible and wasnt thought through. also as someone… 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. Bus companies run services under contract for TfL. Companies which fail to run to schedule risk losing the right to run services. Guess what:… Continue reading…

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…

Too add to my earlier post… I also noted that all of the First buses have adverts inside the buses advertising ‘full day tickets’ and various ticketing options that offer ‘unlimited’ travel. There is no small print on these adverts to indicate these ticket options are not valid on evening… 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…
