I once went into a pub loo and they were playing a live recording of a Billy Connolly gig over head in the speakers. This was totally separate to the music that was played upstairs. I came away thinking I had dreamt it up or had some sort of Scottish comedy stoke.

Thank You, Mr Crow

Thank you comrade Crow for dragging us back to the 1970s and 80s. This morning as commuters fought tooth and nail to get on packed buses or some of the few trains that were actually running, I think many Londoners and visitors to the City genuinely hate Bob Crow for the massive disruption he has caused.

Why We Are on Strike

Bob Crow | Posted 08.04.2014 | UK Politics
Bob Crow

My union has campaigned relentlessly for investment in London Underground, to upgrade and expand services, to replace the archaic fleet and infrastructure with the best available and to tackle backlogs of maintenance and renewals. Londoners deserve that. What we will not accept is a scandalous attempt to dress up savage, austerity-led cuts under the cloak of "modernisation". There is nothing modern about reducing the tube to a hollowed-out shell where a skeleton staff is stretched to breaking point.

There's a sad shift to not supporting any of our workers, in London. When teachers, lecturers and other key members of our society when they go on strike. It's like we think that people deserve bad pay, to lose their job, insanely long hours and little respect. And that's a disgrace.

A spring is certainly present in a lot of Londoners steps right now. They're pleased to hear that they can party all night and take multiple methods of transport home rather than dashing for the last tube or trying to find where that night bus goes from. However, there are so many issues with this idea.

Bombay - A Commute From Hell

Priya Shah

As I reflect on my experiences in India so far, one daily pain I have to endure is my commute to work. That is, four hours a day spent travelling to and from work. This is normal, of course; plenty of people spend a sizeable part of their day just commuting to work as in a developed, modern society, often we live further away from our work than we desire...

Train Punctuality: Are We Measuring the Wrong Thing?

Karan Chadda | Posted 02.06.2013 | UK Politics
Karan Chadda

Here's a question that's not often asked: what if train punctuality is a false measure? Perhaps commuter punctuality is what we should really care about? Instead of the number of trains getting to stations on time, perhaps we would get more useful information if we tracked the number of people being delivered to stations on time.

Fares Fair: Flexible Ticketing and Rebates for Commuters Working from Home

Commuters should have the option of, for example, buying a three-day per week Travelcard. This would make part-time working more affordable for commuters and should encourage those who are able to work from home to do so more often.
