Glasgow's busiest buses: The 18 busiest buses in Glasgow ranked by average daily passenger numbers

Today we're ranking Glasgow's busiest buses in terms of average daily passenger numbers

Tens of thousands of Glaswegians travel around Glasgow by bus each day - it's one of, if not the, most popular form of local public transport in the city used by Glaswegians.

Who can blame them? Glasgow has one of the best public transport systems in the country - as unreliable as they can sometimes be - there’s always options to get around, be it via subway, train, or bus. Even moreso now that McGill’s have partnered with First Bus to rescue the night bus service - which would have severely impacted Glasgow’s nightlife and public transport services at night.

Today we're looking at data exclusively on First Bus, the main operator of buses here in Glasgow - although other buses are available. The majority of the everyday routes in Glasgow are run by First. Other operators in Glasgow include: Citybus, Stagecoach, McGill’s, and JMB.

This list would not be possible without Wishaw Bus Spotter, Aidan Doyle, who provided many of the dramatic shots of the buses below - for more bus pics, check out his Flickr account. As far as bus spotters go, Aidan is one of the most popular in Scotland - with his pictures of buses reaching upwards of 1.5m lifetime views online since he began the account in 2016.
