Newer than the mobile scrap that Firstbus get away with using in Tameside.

Good point the above. I travel on local buses regularly and Firstbus in particular use clapped out old vehicles that are unpleasant - and often uncomfortable - to ride in. This company and Stagecoach have a virtual monopoly nationwide and both make large profits. The difference is Stagecoach vehicles are, on average, far newer, cleaner and in generally better order.
What can the council do about this Firstbus situation which has persisted for mny years? Tameside's travelling public deserve better.
