Cheap ticket to ride and park – I just wish it went my way

Have your say

The latest figures for the Portsmouth park and ride scheme have been announced to a mixed response.

I am not yet one of the travellers as, like other park and rides I have failed to use, this one confuses me.

Why? Because it doesn’t go where I want, when I want.

To me this means it is just another ordinary bus service, albeit a cheaper one.

I was lucky enough to be in Los Angeles last year where a bus ticket cost a dollar no matter how many stops you travelled.

And you could take your bike on racks on the bus too – cycling outwards and catching a lift home.

It’s too late to ask for that type of passenger-oriented scheme to be adopted, but at least make our park and ride worthwhile.
