“It’s the worst it’s ever been”. That’s what people who rely on public transport in Glasgow are saying about the services.
Bus and train timetables have been scaled back, causing issues for commuters and those who live outside the city centre.
In a further blow, First Bus has confirmed the suspension of night services across Glasgow, citing driver shortages.
Hospitality workers say this leaves them with few options to get home safely.
“It’s not just wee issues that need to be addressed. There needs to be an overhaul of transport in Glasgow”, says bar worker Nicky Ford.
“Just think – the subway shuts at 6pm on a Sunday, where is the practicality in that?”
“There’s not enough affordable options for hospitality staff, who are some of the most low paid in society”, she added.
Carer Leeanne Stevens says the public transport options in Drumchapel leave her unable to go out after 6pm.
