Sir Bill Cash MP seeks resolution to cancellation of 31 Cheadle bus service

Thursday, 15 December, 2016
 
In relation to the impending cancellation of the D&G bus route 31 from Hanley to Cheadle, local Cheadle MP, Sir Bill Cash said –
 
“I have written to the Secretary of State for Transport, the bus company D&G and Staffordshire County Council to seek a resolution to the cancelling of the 31 bus route.
 
“I do not want this service to be terminated as the bus service is crucial to my constituents, particularly the elderly community in Forsbrook, Meir, Blythe Bridge, and often for shopping and visiting the doctors, dentists or hospital in Cheadle.
 
“I support my constituents and it is imperative that we must support the town and the transport of local residents to businesses in Cheadle itself and to Blythe Bridge, Forsbrook and Meir because it is local small companies, through the support of local bus services enabling residents to access local business, which will help generate local growth and a successful local economy.
 
“For many, this bus service is the only affordable way to get to work or for schoolchildren to get to school.
 
“I fully understand that a resolution for the bus company needs to be found for the service to not only cover their costs but also make it commercially viable for them.”
