Stagecoach to re-think 585
Over 50 residents and politicians attended a lively Community Council meeting last Wednesday (8 April) to quiz Stagecoach representatives about their decision to axe the number 24 ‘Hospital Bus’. Local Commercial Manager, William Mainus, defended the company’s plan on account of insufficient numbers using the service and diminishing government subsidy. He also quoted from a letter from Strathclyde Passenger Transport (SPT) that the remaining No 10 service “satisfies service level guidelines”.
Community takes over Village Hall lets
