Thread: Bus service in UK

  1. #1
    Just curious what the bus service is like in your area of the UK (price & reliability), cos i reckon Bristol must have the most expensive and worst bus service in the country and i intend to write to the council & mayor.

    Even wikipedia says the First bristol bus service in Bristol is a big steaming pile of shit.

    The only time I see buses is when they're replacement services for the duff trains. True story.

    I never use the bus, however I use the train on a daily basis (weekdays). It is almost invariably on time. When not it's literally a minute or two late, at most. In the last year two trains have been cancelled, both for my journey home. However the next one, half an hour later, was on time.

    Cost wise, I pay under 40 for a monthly ticket (month not 4 week) which is cheaper than it would cost me to drive. Fucking cheaper if you were to factor in parking. People who buy their tickets daily would pay around 60.

    All told I am very happy with the service.

    You take an actual train? Or is it a subway (underground)?
    How far do you travel?

    An actual train, that I do. You seem strangely surprised by this.

    I'm not sure how far I travel. 6 or 7 miles I think but that could be nonsense.
