More pram/wheelchair/flexible spaces! In Brighton (also a city, remember) the buses have a large number of flexible spaces that can be used for prams, wheelchair users; there are fold-down seats if required.

A better pricing system would make more sense – most drivers interrogate you about where you’re going if you ask for a 90p fare as it’s such a short distance, so surely it would make more sense to have a short journey fare which actually allows for a decent length… Continue reading…

The abuse of power exercised by First is having an extremely negative impact on Glasgow’s economy. They are effectively restricting travel across the city and by reducing routes whenever they get the opportunity, are leaving people in more deprived areas effectively prisoners in their housing estates.

I live in Govanhill, it takes me 30 minutes to walk to work (and I do whenever I can) but for me to get the bus it costs £1.85, the same it costs for a person to travel the full length of the bus route. The service doesn’t warrant this… Continue reading…

I see First have responded to the report (from the Scotsman) “First Glasgow, the city’s main bus operator, pledged to take the report’s findings “very seriously”, but questioned their accuracy. A spokeswoman said: “We have concerns the sample size would appear to be limited and therefore not an accurate representation… Continue reading…

A safety issue, particularly concerning older people, those with disabilities, prams etc. Some drivers don’t wait until the person has seated themselves, driving off before they are ready. And also, some drivers don’t stop even though people have pressed the bell – if they don’t see anyone standing up, they… Continue reading…
