Cars are bad

Transport in Glasgow and Scotland as a whole is a bit of a mess. Our neighbours across in mainland Eurpoe seem to have it so much better sorted. Not only do many of these countries have clean, efficent, reliable and cheap transport systems many are also intergrated and you can by a single ticket that will cover your travel on any mode of public transport within a city for the whole day. Glasgow on the other hand has a quite bewildering range of different companies fighting for your attention and your pennies. This could however be about to change as Glasgow City Council has just advertised a job for someone to work with the various companies and develop some kind of smart card system.

The above is all sounding good but there is also worrying news that the largest bus company has raised their ticket prices again and an all day ticket which not long ago was £1.80 will now be £3. Pretty steep rise to use a slightly smelly and opften not brilliant service when the company in question posted profits last year of £210million.
