Frustrated Glasgow Subway passengers take to social media

Frustrated Glasgow Subway passengers take to social media

Frustrations have been growing among Glasgow Subway passengers over replacement bus services which were due to run for four weeks while essential work is carried out.

Replacement bus services may technically be trains, but the frustrations being vented on social media after initial teething problems were incurred by passengers using the replacement buses. Bus Users Scotland raised these issues with SPT who are running the replacement bus services.

An SPT spokesperson explained that the Subway is a circle line and with the road network in Glasgow being so heavily congested, buses are simply not able to match the journey times of the trains they are replacing. However, SPT is committed to improving services and passengers are already seeing the benefit of these efforts.

SPT runs a 10min bus frequency on both the inner and outer circle, increasing to 5min at peak times and there are direct shuttles from the City centre to main stations. A flat fare of £1 is charged for the duration of the work. Passengers have been advised that the work has been extended by 2 weeks and a reopenning date will be publically announced upon completion.

You can follow progress of the Subway work on the SPT website.
