What are the advantages of buses over trains?
In the United Kingdom, travelling by coach is the cheapest mode of transport. Competition between bus providers, such as National Express, megabus and FlixBus, has driven ticket prices down. By contrast, rail prices are constantly on the rise. Coach travel is also more reliable as trains in the UK are commonly subject to multiple strikes each year.
