Public Transport Again

In London last weekend I notice that they take their public transport a bit more seriously than in Leeds where we’ve been abandoned to gridlocked traffic and the tender mercies of Firstbus. Not only did it all seem to work but I went on a tube ride, followed by another tube ride followed by a good few stops on the Docklands Light Railway and it cost £1.90 – the same as a three mile Firstbus from my house into Leeds.

Get the government to come and live here for a bit...Mind you, as long as we get that tram they promised at the bottom of our road by the end of 2007...Anyone want to bet when they drop the trolleybus scheme? Maybe they’ve done that already and sneaked out the news when no-one as looking?
