Deserted by bus company

First published in Letters

I WAS annoyed and disappointed at last Thursday’s article relating to the termination of the number 48 bus service.

I am a mother of a young baby and I suffer from a serious disability which means that I cannot always walk without pain.

On my good days I walk into Stockton Heath down Fairfield Road but on a bad day I have to rely on the bus.

My disability means that I am not allowed to drive, so public transport is vital to me.

I cannot understand why Warrington Borough Transport has spent money on new buses with fancy screens if it needs to cut lifeline services?

I know of many elderly people that will be unable to go out if this service does in fact cease

Maybe WBT need to stop and think about the fact that not everyone has the luxury of being able to drive. I have never been so disappointed in the bus company.

Quite simply WBT is run as a business NOT a public service (irrespective of any soundbites that come out of the town hall). That why they do it.

Perhaps the people you have described could make use of Warrington Community Transport, (Dial-a-Ride), for a door to door service that will better meet their transport needs?
