Job cuts blamed on Gliders

In Northern Ireland, some 85 black-taxi drivers have lost their jobs since the introduction of Glider buses, a spokesman has said.

Taxis have lost trade as some Glider passengers are not buying tickets and regard it as a free service, West Belfast Black Taxis added.

Translink said it had no significant concerns about fare evasion on its Glider buses.

The bus and train operator added that ticket inspectors, who carried out spot checks ‘at different times and locations throughout the day’, verified this.
