I’ve been contacted by a few people to say that Stagecoach is planning to axe our already scarce bus service from May this year. We’re hidden away on page 11/12of their consultation document, where they say that they’re planning to streamline the service by terminating a number of Exeter – Bude buses at Okehampton. Given Central Government is talking of making communities more connected, this is a blow. As someone pointed out, how do people use public transport to attend hospital appointments in Exeter?
The Report says:
Route 6 Exeter • Okehampton • Bude Potential to curtail some journeys at Okehampton. Working with Devon County Council on finalised proposals.
Route 6/6A Bude • Okehampton • Exeter Potential to curtail some journeys at Okehampton. Working with Devon County Council on finalised proposals.
You might want to complain!
