Online PR News – 24-March-2010 – – London, England (March 19, 2010) - 24 7 parking, experts in finding affordable long term parking in London, comment on a survey carried out by the University of Stuttgart which rates London's public transport services amongst the worst in Europe.
The EuroTest survey spanned 23 European cities with London coming fourth from bottom. London public transport was deemed better than Budapest, Ljubljana in Slovenia and Zagreb. Above London are cities including Paris, Rome, Warsaw and Leipzig. Munich, Germany, came out on top in the survey.
London's public transport was criticised for how expensive it was to travel from area to area, whilst poor disabled access was cited as a problem for tube passengers. Poorly-labelled signage was also highlighted as a large issue as was the lack of bike space on buses, trams and underground systems. Transport for London was applauded, however, for the Oyster card system. Transport for London insists that it is investing billions into its public transport services to make them more efficient and user-friendly for all.
"The survey certainly makes for grim reading if you regularly use public transport in London, but it is also, sadly, unsurprising," said Peter Cooper of 24 7 Parking. "The poor state of the capital's transport services has been widely documented for what seems like an age. For many, though, it has to be their travel option of choice. They rarely use the car because parking in London can be so awkward and scarce at peak times so they confine themselves to buses and the tube. If this is the case, then people can contact us at 24 7 Parking, where we can guarantee them cheap parking in London whenever they need it."
