Well, congratulations are in order for the Scottish Government.........erm, not.
Not so long after an increase in train fares, the bus fares have followed suit, and in some cases as high as 28%.
In case anyone in West of Scotland hadn't noticed, First Group have a practical monopoly on the trains, and a share with Stagecoach on the buses. In fact, First Group practically run all the buses in the Glasgow and Lanarkshire areas, with Stagecoach commanding a large portion on the Ayrshire market.
No doubt, any criticism will be blamed on Westminster by Salmond, but that argument is wearing thin. The Scottish Government have managed to find plenty of money for Edinburgh's trams. They've also managed to fund a nice, new shiny bridge as well. Oh, that's Edinburgh as well. Leaving the arguments aside, most people outside of Edinburgh will wonder why so much is being spent in the capital, yet everyone else is paying more for less services.
True, they are funding a refurbishment of the Underground in Glasgow, but that is of little use to most people who work in the city.
The SNP seem to have a problem with Transport.
Perhaps Keith Brown could explain.......
