Pitlochry man says buses are enough
Saturday, 14 June 2008
Mr Lawrie claims that many people choose buses rather than trains because they are far cheaper and the that general public should not be expected to pay for new railway services because few ever use trains. He seems oblivious to the fact that actually drivers are much more likely to take a train than a bus. If buses were satisfactory then St Andrews would not have 20% more of its visitors arriving by car than the average Scottish town. In fact even the Megabus service between St Andrews and Edinburgh was discontinued due to lack of use which hardly suggests hordes of passengers wanting to take a 56 mile journey taking the best part of 2 hours in a bus.
