Transport in Leeds
Disadvantages: RUDE Drivers
Transport in Leeds is an experience, but whether it's a good one or not is another question.
I have visite Leed's a few times, I love it as a place, it's great for shopping but using buses is probably not a good idea.
Theres plenty of buses in & out of the city and the city also has a free bus service which I believe First Buses are currently running it onbehalf of West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (WYPTE or WYMetro as it' known locally). The bus runs every 5 or 6 minutes all around the city centre & it's free, the city centre is very big so it's good when travelling to various points at the other side of the city. However, don't expect a happy or friendly welcome from the drivers, I have used this bus a couple of times before travelling between the bus station & train station, as I am not from Leed's I asked one driver how long it was going to take him to get to the train station from the bus station as I had a train to catch & it may of been quicker if I walked, he tutted at me, checked his sheet & gave me a time, I knew was wrong as it was taking far too long but I sat down, he said would be about 50 minutes, but it took 10 minutes so he hadn't even bothered to check it properly, he rudely replied to me with 50 minutes & gave me a really dirty look. Fair enough the bus is free but still bad servive & First run a lot of the centre's bus network so not good publiciity for there company. I aint really used any other bus in the centre in the past few years but I remember them being rude & unhelpful, the buses were old, but they have got a lot better with newer buses now in operation on most routes but drivers are rude & unfriendly, even staff at the bus station are rude too.
Overall I find transport in the area bad, with shockingly rude drivers on buses and bad traffic congestion.
