It's a pity about the rise in fares. However, since I started using Firstbus as well as Lothian buses, I have noticed that every time a Firstbus stops to pick up a few passengers, it is frustratingly slow. I notice that they have frozen the fares for those using the mobile app though. Anything that will speed up the loading of passengers will be a good thing.
Fear knocks at the door, knowledge answers and finds nothing.
