So, I'm sat at Edinburgh Park station contemplating how far we are from having integrated transport solutions in this country.

Having had a fabulous long weekend away in Shetland I'm now trying to make my way home. Flight from Sumburgh, ok apart from the airport not spotting that we'd arrived and leaving us sitting at the stance for 15 minutes. Connection with public transport from Edinburgh airport, fail! First a taxi driver who doesn't know the route to the closest train station, and then charges the best part of a tenner. Then super friendly (not) station staff and another 7 quid to Stirling. At least it's only a short walk at the other end. And it's not raining.

No wonder we're addicted to our cars here. The alternative just isn't that easy! Roll on the trams!
