FURTHER to the letter by Hugo Platt headlined “Ask any taxi driver” (Letters May 9) I would like to say, ask them this.
Do they think that having lots of taxis on the roads around York taking individuals to their destination is better than fitting 50+ customers in a warm clean bus? And why do they think bendy buses are a silly idea?
I think you will find that a taxi is not a cheap way to get around York, unless you are going a short distance. Buses are not expensive for the service you receive.
I can get a bus into town in ten minutes, as can many people.
Please don’t put down any mode of public transport in York as they all have their advantages and each one suits a different need.
Mrs T Williams, Rawcliffe, York
