Outcry prompts bus fund plan

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News

FURY over the loss of a 'vital lifeline' has prompted a parish council to consider funding part of a popular bus service.

Residents in Caverswall were given just one day’s notice that services were changing and the popular route 50 would no longer be picking up passengers in the village.

Now, Caverswall Parish Council is planning to find out if and how it might be able to fund the service and is already contacting Staffordshire County Council and Moorlands MP Karen Bradley.

A group of 10 pensioners attended the council’s monthly meeting on April 9 arguing that they have had to fork out more than £10 a journey using private taxi companies as a result of the cut-backs.

The bus service, which was operated by Scragg’s, was slashed as part of a Staffordshire County Council cost-saving campaign introduced at the beginning of this month.
