UK: Easy (Peasy) Bus
easyBus, that is.
EasyBus is the 600,000th component of Stelios Haji Ioannou’s easy.com empire. Or at least that’s how it seems. EasyBus is a transfer service currently running between central London and Luton. In June, easyBus will add Stansted to its as yet quite small network. Fares begin at £2 for tickets booked online; walk-up London-Luton fares begin at £8; walk-up London-Stansted fares begin at £7.
We’d love to see easyBus enter markets with poor and slow transportation links between airport and city center—especially in cities where extortionate taxi drivers rule the transfer roost. Consider the preceding sentence an open suggestion, Stelios.
