How a Minibus Can Solve the Problem of Archaic Public Transport

​Public transport has been around for centuries, although as times are changing, so are many traditional opinions on this phenomenon. Recent research from Fujitsu suggests that more than a third (34%) of UK people think that the public transport sector as a whole is not fit for purpose. Much of this criticism is due to concerns around overly-lengthy commuter routes and unpredictable services, which are currently creating a common lack of trust in the services to deliver passengers to their destinations on time.

Of these individuals, almost three-quarters (72%) have called for investments to modernise services, as nearly half (49%) of people currently feel the sector is stuck in the past. As a result of this, half (50%) of all passengers have said that they do not trust public transport to get them from A to B on time, with around 29% of these spending anywhere between 45 minutes to two hours commuting every day.

These worrying statistics have a knock-on effect for local schools and colleges within communities, as the lack of reliability for public transport when on annual trips can prove a major risk. If you’ve planned a great educational day trip out with your students, but the local public transport becomes a risk for safety and timings, it can put a dampener on what could have been a rewarding day for both teachers and pupils.
