He’s ‘moaning’ on behalf of all of us who have relied on CPS to use our EVs to get around Scotland and have experienced less than ideal service for years now, and who were promised a working app from day 1 by SWARCO and have been let down again. They’ve been working on this for months, and only now they admit they can’t provide a functioning service, even for those of us who have RFID cards for their other operations? It’s poor stuff and as usual somehow it becomes the job of the EV user to mitigate for others’ incompetence.OK, are you moaning on behalf of yourself or some other generic users.
The communications have been pretty good. Are you making journeys on the 27th, 28th, 29th. Can these be delayed.Can you take advantage of alternative charging, at work, at your destination.
General principal is one the same as making an omelette.
I’ll be in Aberdeen on D-Day visiting my father for the first time in more than a year and need to get to Dundee, Glasgow and down to Carlisle in the first week of the new contract. So - with probably hundreds of others - I’ll be scraping around using Instavolt, ancient Ecotricity machines and whoever else I can find to get me from A to B. There may be queues. There will be delays and frustration in what is a busy time of year. Frankly, fanboys making inane comments about omelettes isn’t helping anyone.
I’m sure Swarco’s task is not an easy one but there’s a limit to everyone’s ability to rearrange their lives around this stuff, particularly in a pandemic. I’d like to see the Scottish Government take some responsibility here - why has the existing shambles been allowed to fester for so long? Whose poor contract management has allowed CYC to take the piss for so long? Is the CPS model fit for purpose? Are there too many cooks? Why are they making the transition in mid-summer? Will there be a penalty to SWARCO for failing to provide the app as promised? Is anyone paying attention?
