As an investor, I am interested to know what route Snap are now going down since you seem to have given up on the intercity travel and be focussing on commuter travel.
Right now, there is decent demand for intercity coach travel and that is being proven with Flixbus setting up and National Express adding in duplicates because of the demand. You also have coach operators who are on the brink of collapse and some of the extra revenue could really help the industry. Purely for example, todays #HonkforHope event in London could have given operators a chance to use Snap to carry people into London and help the operators travelling the 100+ miles, get some revenue back for the journey which they were making anyway.
Given all the promotion that I have done to try and help Snap grow, it feels like a kick in the teeth that now you have given up on what was the main source of income for Snap and also given that the vast majority of people invested into Snap because of the intercity travel and not commuter services.
I fully appreciate having commuter services as a sideline project but with it becoming the main project (as would be assumed with the Republic of Snap data for intercity travel being basically scrapped and it’s not all for Covid Secure commuter travel).
I would like to ask is there an intention to bring back intercity coach travel shortly or is the focus going to be on commuter buses from here on in?
