Number 17 Bus Route Saved!

February 6, 2018 4:46 PM

Stagecoach BusLib Dem campaigners are celebrating the U-turn by Conservative councillors that threatened rural bus services, including the evening service of the Number 17, serving Barham, Kingston, Bishopsbourne and Bridge.

Mike Sole said, "It has been a worrying few weeks since Kent County Council (KCC) announced that 74 essential bus routes were under threat. Local residents were shocked that they might lose the only evening bus through the Elham Valley. "As the official opposition on KCC the Liberal Democrats campaigned against these cuts forcing the Conservatives to think again. It beggars belief that they even thought about making these cuts in the first place. The council's own report said that this cuts would particularly affect the disabled, older people and carers."
