  1. Thnk you Margaret. I am convinced that if more public representatives and officers at all levels were dependent on the local bus network it would be a lot better than it is. Maybe we shouldn’t allow these excessive claims for car mileage – but only the miles necessary to take them to the nearest public transport – whatever the quality

  2. Dear Caroline

    Being a user of public transport I would like you to have a look at my write up on the journey from Hell with “First bus” – Their passengers certainly don’t come first with them.

    May I suggest that we set a challlenge for other County Councilllors (that never use buses) to take a ride with us the public transport users to actually see how difficult it is.

    We set them a challenge of getting to a hospital appointment, just wanting to get into town with out having to plan it in advance and going out for an evening?
