It’s not only Londoners who rely on buses and trains | Lynsey Hanley

Since the deregulation of buses occurred back in the year 1986, London has actually seen a decrease of public transportation usage down to a third of what it used to be. Although public transport still remains the number one method of travel among London residents, its popularity is steadily declining due to the increase of fare, as well as the destruction of old routes. We are also becoming more and more aware of the toxins we are breathing in from petroleum-powered vehicles, causing us to be more cautious about riding on buses and other forms of public transit.

Key Takeaways:

  • Those who rely on public transportation are slowly finding other methods due to the impact it has on the environment.
  • Increases in fares and decreases in bus routes are another reason for more and more people opting out of public transit.
  • Scotland is another country where most of the residents rely on public transportation as their main method of getting around.
