Not on the buses


Several residents have raised the lack of bus services particularly from the parts of the ward furthest away from the city centre. The bus service supported previously by Sainsbury’s development has now returned to the council to fund. The change has been chaotic with services deleted or reduced without any notice being given.


I am worried about those without their own transport and who may be elderly or with reduced mobility and who rely on bus services. I am also concerned about the lack of safe cycle routes giving people few options other than cars. This is why I will have transport as one of my priorities. I will press for improve bus services that recognise the distance from some areas of the ward to the city centre and supermarkets.
