Save Our Bus Services

N15 WAL 5515 - DAF Ikarus Citibus, Damory Coaches, Gillingham (8554225455)

Dorset County Council has announced that it is cutting the number of bus services that it supports from 35 down to just 7!

This will have a devastating effect on everyone who doesn’t have access to a car.

It will increase isolation as those on low incomes, poor mobility and the elderly, who live anywhere that isn’t close to a town centre, will become stranded in their homes.

How are people to get food, to do their shopping or get to the doctors or the hospital?

Some may be able to rely on family or friends some of the time, but many others will not.

The bus services that will come to an end in our area on July 22nd include:

1, 2 and 6 Dorchester town services
44 West Bay – Bridport
71 Lyme Regis town service
73 Powerstock – Bridport
74 Sherborne – Yetminster – Yeovil
101 Crossways – Broadmayne – Dorchester
210 Litton Cheney – Bridport
211 Poundbury – Weymouth
212 Dorchester – Yeovil
307 Stalbridge – Dorchester
311 Blandford – Dorchester

 

 

I/We, the undersigned, view with dismay the decision by Dorset County Council to cut the number of supported bus services from 35 to just 7 and call for their funding to be reinstated.
