Bus Services after the Spending Review - Transport Committee Contents

Written evidence from N Thompson (BUS 81)

I wish to object most strongly about the bus reductions due to begin next month.

The weekend services into the Yorkshire Dales are extremely well used by walkers in particular. These buses play an important role in keeping cars off the road, thus reducing pollution.

The X59 service between Skipton and Harrogate is to be reduced drastically and will only be of real benefit to passengers travelling from Harrogate. It will no longer provide an opportunity to Skipton people to spend a day in Harrogate.

I urge that all is done to prevent these valuable bus services being curtailed or withdrawn.
