Overcrowding isn't the most complained about travel issue

Ever feel like you have a nightmare commute?

Don't we all, but if you're travelling from Woking to Waterloo or on the number 29 bus, you're probably having a rough one - as is everyone else.

The two routes are the most complained about, according to data relating to more than 1.5m journeys across the UK from transport app Moovit.

It's no surprise that London's overcrowded commuter routes got us the most riled up, with routes from Caterham to Victoria, Reading to Paddington, Dartford to Victoria, and Stansted to Liverpool Street, rounding out the most complained about list.

When it comes to buses, the capital's no better, with the number 18 (Euston to Sudbury via Paddington), 38 (Victoria to Clapton via Piccadilly), 149 (London Bridge to Edmonton via Shoreditch) and 73 from Victoria to Stoke Newington via Euston).

Delays are the problem which really get our goat, with every two in five problems reported on Moovit relating to hold-ups, while platform and route changes among the difficulties least likely to bother us.
