A subsidied bus service is required in order to offer transport to a small number of elderly and disabled residents who otherwise would be housebound or severely lose quality of life. One has already ended up in hospital due to not being able to get out.


Bus shelters/stops are in place but buses stopped years ago.


Bus company is dragging their heels.

It would not take much to redirect a small bus to cover this patch. M.P.s not answered request for help.


Any way to push this along? ANy relevant legislation?

Yes, I have done that.

Contacted M.Ps too.



After posting, I started looking for legislation. Not found it yet.

I think it is beyond appalling, leaving elderly and disabled people stranded, housebound unable to get out and about.



Found this group who also have local better transport groups.

This would be ok ericsbrother for perhaps a special day out etc. But in practical terms this does not offer:




*Ability to get out spontaneously, when feeling like it

*Free use of the governments bus pass

*Ability to go and see friends and family

*Ability to volunteer

*quality of life



How would you feel, if you were forced to be housebound and had to organise with the rest of your street when you could go out every now and again for shopping?
