Where’s the bus going?
Stagecoach have decided that the Citi 1 and Citi 2 services should no longer travel along Chesterton Lane and Bridge Street. This cavalier action means that elderly, people with a disability and those who are simply weary will have to carry heavy shopping bags to distant bus stops. Local Labour councillors made a number of representations to Stagecoach over the plans, but the bus company insisted on re-routing the services.
Why does the County Council not use its regulatory powers? Councillor Jocelynne Scutt is putting these questions to both the County and Stagecoach – and will return with answers in future newsletters. Watch this space.
