What is your attitude towards public transport?

A panellist on BBC Radio’s “Any Questions” on Friday talked about driving to Strasbourg (France) from the UK, instead of going by train, because it only took him seven hours instead of eight. This incurred the wrath of another panellist who was incensed at his disregard for the environmental damage he was doing.

I remember – years ago – that Prime Minister Thatcher said that only failures in life used public transport after the age of 30.

To me, these attitudes betray a certain turn of mind that I find difficult to accept. I always use public transport when I can, both because of seeking to preserve the environment and not being a snob.

It helps that there is an hourly bus service to town from the bus stop almost outside my house, plus the fact that I don’t own a car! However, I appreciate that not everyone is the same position.

It would be interesting to know if other people think the same way that I do.
