I filled in a Suggestions Card a year or so ago, suggesting that the seats should be unbolted from where they are, turned round, leaving enough leg room and rebolted. I put the card in the box provided.
Surprise, surprise, I didn't receive an acknowlegment, nor has the suggestion been acted upon!

Hid's no the only thing daft aboot the "Travel Centre" There are some nice vacant offices - some of which have never earned a penny in rent in 4 years!!!!!!!!

The bag was mine Jimmy. The most explosive thing in it was a tin of Coke. But I take your point. We get away with things like that up here – just now.
I will repeat your suggestion Isobel. It would not take a lot of work and there is plenty of room. We shall see what happens. Watch this space.

While you are at it do something about the door which keeps opening when you get up to look for your bus and lets all that grand hot air out.

Also, if you are sitting on the seats in the area next the Travel Centre, and a bus comes in to Stand 1, it totally obscures the view of the rest of the stands. Not the best bit of bus station design in the world. But hid is nice an' warm.
