As for BE, I don't really think they are duplicating that much, aside from the big points on a route they are not and given the pricing difference there will always be a market for a bus along at rain corridor.
BE problems go much deeper to the route of the problems.
Actually I use a shuttlebus to and from Hazelhatch station. I would not be bothered driving - it saves me a fortune in petrol and carparking charges. I also arrived relaxed for work in the mornings, rather than frazzeled if I drove to work, or arrived in an over crowded bus.
