Advantages: Richard Branson
Disadvantages: People not trusting the service
I used to travel quite a lot via these trains and they are still the same, totally unreliable.
It’s amazing that these trains have never got any better but worse in the past few years.
The delays are shocking and it’s only if you have passes that you get discounts which is absurd.
Lots and lots of people travel by this transport but if it gets any worse the figures will drop a lot more than they are doing now.
You simply can’t trust them to get you anywhere on time, and even if you get early trains that should give you more time than you know what to do with you still can’t guarantee that you’ll be there on time.
Branson is trying but not hard enough, he says this and that and comes up with nothing.
His new one is to cut fares in half but it will take a lot more to get his regulars back and keep them using it as they were.
The car is about the only reliable transport these days and even then the roads are getting worse because no one trusts other means of transport.
