Today, my wife and I decided to take our grandson, ( 4 years old) on the bus to Llandudno. The journey only takes about 20 minutes so it was a change from the car. On the way back my wife said to me:" Do you know how much this journey would have cost us if we had to pay?" Of course I didn't as I never took a bus before I retired. " £3.50 each way, each" she said. So that would have been £14 for such a short journey! Why is public transport so expensive? The same journey by car would have cost me £1 max on diesel for all of us.
