Wessex Red is the worst bus service I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with. They are consistently late, often by more than half an hour, delivering maybe one bus in the time that there were meant to have been 3, and this is on top of the regular "never enough legroom" issue that all buses seem to have.

They are also my only choice if I want to get to uni. No First buses go to Bower Ashton, so I'm stuck with it for the rest of this year and probably next year too.

If you don't believe how bad they are, just search "wessex bus" and "wessex red" on Twitter - it's almost entirely complaints.

First weren't much better when I was using them. I'll never forget the time a (mostly) empty bus drove past a queue of people waiting without stopping. On the bright side, this was when I was at university in Staffordshire. Staffordshire is vaguely famous for it's pottery, so First had decided to call their company Potteries Motor Transport. So whenever you got on a bus, there was as sign reading "Thank you for travelling with PMT".
