Stagecoach asked to cover Coleview bus services
Following the news that Thamesdown Transport is cutting their bus services to Coleview without any passenger or local Councillor consultation, Cllr Dale Heenan has contacted Stagecoach to see if they are prepared to provide a bus service to local residents in Coleview.
Cllr Dale Heenan, “The Thamesdown Transport Service 23 is used by many elderly residents in Coleview and a local bus service is essential for their own independence. With Stagecoach having two nearby bus routes it makes perfect sense to see what potential there is for them to make a simple detour through Coleview and step into the breach.
The 66 travels along Oxford Road to Sainsburys on the way to Oxford every 30 minutes, while the 65 is every 2 hours. The cut 23 took 8 minutes to include Coleview so there must be alternatives which are practical and feasible.”
