Bus Services after the Spending Review - Transport Committee Contents

Written evidence from P Gibson (BUS 133)

I live in the village of Dalton Piercy near Hartlepool, due to cuts in public subsidies to bus operators we no longer have a bus service passing through the village. This means that for anyone without a car there is a three mile walk to the nearest centre of Hartlepool. Many people here are pensioners, a taxi is a considerable portion of their meagre pension for the round trip. I realise that due to the financial mess left by the previous government we are in parlous times but please give some consideration to the case put forward by our local MP, Mr I Wright.
