    Yeah from what I've experienced and seen the core routes are really picking up numbers but everything else seems to be creeping up too

    First Greater Glasgow

    Absolutely agree with this. Not sure how easy it would be to implement given how long it took the timetables themselves to be updated on the mobile app but it would take away a bit of the customer stress

    First Greater Glasgow

    Unless a service was hourly before lockdown then it needs to be every 30/40 mins at worst for services. I don't really see double deckers being enough and unless there's a lot of extra buses being set up which I doubt there is then there's going to be problems very quickly

    First Greater Glasgow

    Seems to be an increase in public transport usage already going by what the general online chat is and that's where the problem is. I think it'll be needed before phase 2 personally as some employers will probably make staff go into work earlier than the phase they should and if usage is already...

    I'm guessing that there won't be timetable changes on Monday? Makes sense I guess given that we could go into Phase 1 on Thursday meaning more buses would be needed then anyway so it's pointless changing timetables twice in 4 days. Also allows for better planning if there's no changes until Thursday

    I've seen 1 decker on a Helensburgh 1B but other than that I think it might be the first time where they'll be used on all services on that route set

    First Greater Glasgow

    I do think the 2 should have been double decker operated far more than it has been in recent years say with even an every 10 min frequency. The 3 is a strange one because it's the reliability that absolutely kills it. It's either mobbed or fairly empty from my experiences. The 6 certainly west...

    Route changes to the 1,1A,1D and 205 to allow bigger buses to be used. On the website now

    First Greater Glasgow

    Yeah it would have been a sensible thing for here given how unreliable our buses are capable of being. They end up full a lot at peaks and outside of that sometimes too

    Was quite surprised when I first seen a 500 with that message in Buchanan Bus Station haha

    First Greater Glasgow

    A "bus full" message would have been great over the last few years for the 1s and 2s down my way. Even just before lockdown the reliability was so bad that they turned up full quite regularly even outside of peaks

    First Bus Introduce Social Distancing

    First's ideas based on government guidance as far as I'm aware. Just seems a few weeks too late to me especially given as lockdown could be eased next week here in Scotland so frequency of all services will probably need to increase again anyway. Could possibly be another week with 2 sets of...

    First Bus Introduce Social Distancing

    Seems to be that in general the new measures by First have went down like a lead balloon going by social media. Good idea on paper but could be horrendous in execution

    First Bus Introduce Social Distancing

    Definitely pros and cons to this. Will make it safer to travel but having zero guarantee that you'll even get on the bus in the first place. Seen a lot of very concerned people over what it'll mean for their journey especially those with frequencies lower than every 30 mins. It's something...

    First Greater Glasgow

    Yeah I agree. If they could even get the every hour services up to half hour and 30 mins up to 20 it would be a big help but requires a lot of extra drivers etc

    First Greater Glasgow

    Will need to be asap I think. Seems to be the general thing on most services that passenger numbers are increasing fairly quickly. Definitely seen more people say they've went back to work this week than previous weeks

    First Bus Introduce Social Distancing

    I've only been on 8 buses since this lockdown started(all going or coming back from interviews) and 7 of them were definitely more than a quarter full and the general mention online seems to be that most services are getting busier. Was never going to be the easiest thing to maintain social...

    First Bus Introduce Social Distancing

    Any plans to increase frequency as a result of that? Will lead to a lot of problems with current frequency

    First Greater Glasgow

    I was on 4 buses on Thursday as I had an interview (1A,267,7A and 1C) all single decker and the first 3 were okay for social distancing but the 1C definitely wasn't. Even with 13/14 people on the bus I had someone directly infront of me and behind me and I didn't feel remotely comfortable as it...
