I did see a "key worker" complaining about overcrowding on their train, saying how unpleasant commuting used to be and hoping that it would never be allowed to go back to that.So many complaints on Twitter about overcrowding on the Barry Island trains, but don't people realise that they themselves are the cause of that? It's coming across as if they (the complainers) should be allowed to travel, but everyone else should be stopped.
I don't know what their plan was - I hope it wasn't that we will introduce capacity controls on peak hour trains with some kind of priority scheme based on what job you do...
I don't see the 769's as making a huge difference. How many are they?The truth is they are using this all as an excuse as the trains are dreadfully inadequate! They have not got enough trains and they KNOW that people flock to the Island on hot days! They will not put the timetable back to normal either at least until the 769s are available.
Not just National Express. Also bus companies in Wales.They should at least do as National Express do and inside seat only except for people living together. They would have half a chance then!
