I don't feel public transport will ever be safe enough for my 15yr old girl to travel alone on to get to, and from work in the dark. It takes 18 minutes for me to drive her from Fulham to Karulta Park, but she has to allow an hour by bus with a change over in the city..... Can the 2 forms of transport ever really compare??
