Public Transport

There's a bit of a fuss at the moment about public transport. Here is an interesting article from the Times comparing British train fares with those in European countries.

What I can't fathom is why it costs me £2.90 single to travel 10 miles to Lancaster by train but only 10p more (£3.00) for a return. Using a mile by mile fare, which may be slightly unfair but illustrates the point, my journey to London (about 300 miles) should cost about £900, which it doesn't. Just a thought.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
