  • Castle Meadow buses only, so much for that, it's just another bus station, here we are spending money on Grapes Hill for a bus lane, most of which have to finish up going along Castle Meadow, a re think of the bus service is needed, combing County runs with City runs is not the answer. There are enough private coach firms already covering County run, so why not leave just City run to First Bus, simplify the system

  • I have lived in Norwich for many years, and have never used a bus to get about, nor have I used a taxi to get around the City, the buses drive so slow you can get there quicker by walking, and if you take a taxi in Norwich its like being in a formula 1 race. so I would rather walk everywhere.

  • They are called First for a reason. first to be late, first to be cancelled, first to put up fare prices, and first to be laughed at

  • At least whilst they are all in Castle Meadow the traffic will not be held up so much by the buses. Result, hope it rains again tomorrow.
