Buses in Glasgow
Advantages: 747 airport service
Disadvantages: rude drivers
To be fair, without the buses I would be lost in Glasgow. However I grudge the money I pay for the service I get sometime, no actually, a lot of the time!
It will cost you about 1.30 just to get a couple of stops down the road which is a rip off if you ask me. One day a driver will tell you it's 85p and the next day a driver will tell you it's £1.30 to go the same distance, which is just confusing for everyone. I find a lot of the drivers really rude and un-accommodating, for example driving off really quickly before you have even sat down. This is especially hazardous to old people.
There are not enough busses that go through the Clyde tunnel connecting the west end to the south side of the city. The Linthouse area is particularly difficult to get transport to from the north of the city. Th 89, one of the only busses that goes this way is late more often than not.
The 747 bus service has been a welcome addition though, making it easy to get out to Glasgow airport without spending a fortune on a taxi.
Summary: I would be lost without them, but there is a lot of room for improvement.
