A public show of opposition to the proposed bus route changes (see recent posts) took place today. Around 70 local residents came to explain why they really needed this service to travel up Scarsdale road. Councillor Ian Auckland gave his support, as did Richard May from the Post Office and NoLRA committee members John Brown and Nick Robinson.
Apparently, passenger numbers are behind the changes, but public transport should never be just about profit, it’s a vital service for the whole neighbourhood.
