Last Bus Unknown

[Picture of Firstbus notice about service 121 changes]SOME OTHER BUS COMPANY WILL BE WORKING THIS ROUTE SOMETIMES, BUT WE’RE NOT GOING TO TELL YOU WHO IT IS —  JUST THAT IT ‘AIN’T US, SO THERE!

That is basically what the following notice is about (please double click on the image to see it enlarged).

This is what it states:

First
transforming travel

CUSTOMER NOTICE

Service 121
Govan – Victoria Infirmary

From Friday 7 November a revised timetable
will operate on service 121 as a result of changes to
the SPT tender.

First Glasgow will continue to operate the service
during
the day Monday to Saturday.

In the early morning, evening and all day Sundays
another operator will run service 121.

Please call Strathclyde Partnership for Transport on
0845 271 2405 for details of the service at these times.

For further information visit
http://www.firstgroup.com/glasgow or call Customer
Services on 0141 423 6600 for more details.

It is beyond me why they couldn’t put all the information on the notice — we have just enough information to make a phone call or visit a website — hey, yeah, thanks for that guys!

Just in time for Christmas office parties, when people will be leaving their cars and relying on public transport!

Things are getting worse when routes are carved up like this anyway — everyone loses the plot.  Will the new operator be using the usual 121 bustops (the First Glasgow stops)? Will the timetable remain, or will it change for the better or worse?  What about fares?  Will bus passes, travel passes and cards still work?

What a mess — and we didn’t even see it coming (bit like the bus service itself)!
