Bus travel in the US is a tough slog for many, especially if you’re travelling with a child or toddler.
There are no designated bus stops, no designated boarding gates and no official bus timetable, so the travel options are limited.
But that can all change with the introduction of a new bus service, Gilt Om, which promises a bus travel experience that will be much more affordable and convenient than traditional public transport.
The service, launched in the U.K. last week, has already racked up more than 1 million passengers.
So how do you get a bus ticket?
Bus travel is not officially allowed in the country, but that hasn’t stopped the Giltomom community from taking to social media to post pictures of the new bus system and ask questions.
What is Giltoom?
Gilt omen is a short form for gilt by appointed appointment.
In this case, the bus has to be taken to a designated bus stop.
The bus driver will then hand over a ticket and the child can board the bus for free.
Gilt om is a new public transport service, but it is the same service offered in many cities across the U/S.
The journey takes approximately 20 minutes.
It is usually packed with people from around the country.
But not all people want to go to a city where there are no buses to take them.
There is a bus service available to get to some places in the capital.
Geltomom will be operating in London on Thursday, December 16 and is currently operating in Birmingham, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham, Southampton, Swansea, Swansea and the West Midlands.
This service is currently in the process of expansion and will soon be available to more destinations.
So if you have kids and are looking for a way to get them to school, a bus trip could be the way to go.
