A BUS company was set to appeal for help at a meeting of Cheadle Town Council last night.
As the Times and Echo went to press, representatives from Aimee’s Travel were expected to urge councillors to help them find a solution to keep ‘life-line’ bus services on the road.
The company pledged to keep a reduced 30 service from Tean to Leek running after Staffordshire County Council axed transport subsidies.
Now, declining passenger numbers are leaving already ‘isolated’ villagers at risk of losing the service altogether.
Cllr Ray Wood urged bus users along the route to attend the meeting of Cheadle Town Council to voice their concerns and share possible solutions.
