Issue with the 15 is that there's many concession card users on the route, so it's not that profitable and it's only going to get worse as the reimbursement rate from the Government is being cut again. Before 2008 though Airyhall had a bus every 15 minutes (Route X18), with a separate bus to Craigiebuckler every 15 Minutes (Route 11). I live just off the route of the 1/2 so get a bus every 7 minutes or better. jj5

 

(i know a bit about the bus industry dead2)

you're lucky, i hate going anywhere on the bus coz it takes so long. they really went and made it longer by adding the people from the 5 to it too dead4

The merge with the 5 was to try and make it more sustainable. However it should have had the frequency increase by now. 

My Grandad has been a driver there for 41 years, i'm just a bus enthusiast/spotter one of my many other hobbies (sad life), I'm 18 bebe1

It done what it was initially meant to do, but they've done a crap job at progressing the service.

I've not long finished, current plan is to pass me driving test and then get a PCV, that way i can get a job at either at First/Stagecoach. To be brutally honest while it's not something i wouldn't rule out i don't plan on doing uni.

I'm fairly confident that i'll manage car driving just fine, it's the bus driving once i've done that which is more worrying, i think i'll be fine though plus i have a good mentor! dead4 It may not be the best paying job, but my outlook is that i'd rather be in a decent paying job that i enjoy rather than a higher paying job that i hate. I'm really bad for not getting dedicated to stuff which i'm not interested in so i'd probably be awful at uni. bebe1
