Willaston and Rope Ward UKIP Councillor Brian Silvester is calling for the Flexible Bus Service (See attached) to be publicised better so residents know it is available.
He said," Parts of Willaston have no bus service at all so this door to door bus service is ideal and it is free after 9.30am to all those who have a bus pass.Those who don't have a bus pass have to pay £3 each way.(See below)The service is open to all those who have difficulty using public transport for whatever reason.Residents who have used it say it is very good service. It took over from Dial a Ride about a year ago. Users have to first register before they can use the bus.The number to ring is 08450779110. I am calling on Cheshire East Council and D&G buses to give the service more publicity so less people will be housebound for the lack of transport and more people know about it and will be able to use it. This would result in less subsidy being required."
