Boxing Day blues?
18 December 2014
Looks like buses and coaches will be taking up the slack on Boxing Day outside London when there are very limited rail services operating.
Increased bookings for National Express coaches reflect the desire to avoid engineering works and replacement buses on the West Coast and other places.
The bus industry seems oddly reticent about trumpeting what it is mobilising on Boxing Day - First Group has at least put out a very positive statement showing 1000 buses and 1600 staff on the road on Boxing Day.
London different as ever - good public transport right across the holidays.
