Bus Users adds Wells to Somerset Your Bus Matters programme

Bus Users adds Wells to Somerset Your Bus Matters programme

As Somerset County Council (SCC) launches a consultation over plans to reduce bus services and subsidies in the region, Bus Users UK is to hold a Your Bus Matters event in Wells, giving local passengers a chance to have their say.

In addition to the reductions in the frequency of some subsidised services, the announcements from SCC include proposals to reduce the 09:00 – 09:30 concessionary enhancement currently available to bus pass holders, as well as removal of the companion pass. 

Your Bus Matters, in partnership with First, will be at Wells Bus Station in the Travel Shop/Waiting Room on Saturday 9 January from 12pm to 4pm.

Passengers will be able to raise their concerns direct with the people responsible for running bus services in their area including local bus operators and local councillors.
