I am sure Nugent will be along to tell us that Motorists are freeing up more seats.
The reality is PT users have switched to cycling and moronists still clog our roads.

A sign from the AA, RAC and ABD saying 'Thank you cyclists for paying for our motorways even though you can't use them' would not go amiss.

You're a bit behind the times, again, aren't you?

The Manchester sign was a nice first start though. :-)

LOL!

Do you deny that far more drivers than cyclists vacate seats for others?

REALLY?

Indeed - the extra cars would just end up slowing down the buses by causing more congestion, unlike cyclists.

Mike Collins doesn't give the impression of one who has grasped his own
material.

Yes.



A. How many extra seats on public transport would be occupied (or at
least, required) if every cyclist swapped over to PT?

B. How many extra seats on public transport would be occupied (or at
least, required) if every car occupant swapped over to PT?

If your answer to A is greater than you answer to B, show your dodgy
working out.

You still seem unable to grasp the simple concept that since COVID-19 those who commuted by car still travel by car, those who walked still walk, those who cycled still cycle, those who travelled by PT are switching to pedal cycles and in doing so free up PT seats.
