EDITOR – I, along with many others, am dismayed at the proposed decline in bus services.
I do not drive and have used the buses since I moved to the area in 1983. They are my lifeline.
In the present climate one would expect an improved service allowing people to use the buses and leave their cars at home.
The services should be more widespread to enable our young people to look for work further a field without the expense of providing a car, keeping it roadworthy and supplied with ever more expensive fuel.
Why should it always be rural areas that lose out when their needs are often greater than those in urban areas?
