“Please help me persuade McGill's Bus Service to reinstate a bus service from Paisley to Glasgow University.” – Andrew Erroch

Description

Andrew Erroch

This week, my wife had major problems with her usual route because it has been changed. For a while, she had been getting the Arriva No.7 bus from Barshaw Park in Paisley to Woodlands Road in Glasgow, just past Glasgow University. As of this week, the service is operated by McGills buses and they have changed the route. On the first day she had to get off at the other side of Kelvingrove Park, at the nearest stop to her destination and she had absolutely no idea where to go. My wife is Thai and she sometimes struggles with English, so she was really worried. She wanted to stop a taxi on Sauchiehall Street to take her to her final destination, but she eventually found the way after asking some people, although she was late. There are no longer any buses that go from Paisley to Glasgow University because Arriva No.17 has been cancelled altogether. My wife has to completely rethink her transport options and this is unacceptable.

Regards
