Bus Services after the Spending Review - Transport Committee Contents

Written evidence from W Wainwright (BUS 127)

I am writing to complain of the cancellation of bus services in Hartlepool, from 7.00pm from Sundays to Thursdays only Friday and Saturdays having a service around the town till 11.15pm. I'm sure you are aware that Hartlepool is the 7th most deprived town in England and what employment there is, is based on the minimum wage structure and people who work in jobs that continue after 7.00pm are having to find more expensive ways to get to their homes ie Taxis.

Surely this cannot be right in the 21st century as public transport is a necessity to keep towns alive. Mr Cameron said we are all in together but this action doesn't give credit to his statement.

I hope the Committee can put pressure to bear and let Hartlepool have its bus services back.
