We’ve received confirmation that the 250 and 251 evening bus services are due to end on Sunday 27th August 2017. Cllr Ray Gooding has told us that the services will cease because they are infrequently used and not affordable for the taxpayer.
While we appreciate that councils are under tremendous financial pressure we do not think that stopping these services is a reasonable solution – they are essential services with no other public transport alternative and we believe that more could be done to encourage their use. Stopping them would affect local businesses, their staff and their customers, along with commuters, students, mobility impaired people and anyone who doesn’t drive.
We’ve requested a meeting with Cllr Gooding to discuss alternatives to stopping the services and hand in our petition.
