Bill Cash MP asks London Midland to investigate funding of re-extension of X1 Bakerbus service

Press release 01/12/09
 
In respond to constituent calls for the X1 Bakerbus service to return their route to Stafford Station, Bill Cash said:
 
“It is clear from Staffordshire County Council’s view that Bakerbus once received a payment from London Midland trains to cover the costs of the extension of the X1 bus service from Stafford Hospital to Stafford station. Their letter states that when Stone gained its regular rail service, the funding ceased and Bakerbus therefore withdrew the service that went all the way to Stafford Station.
 
“I have therefore asked the Managing Director of London Midland to investigate the situation and see if anything can be done relating to the payment to Bakerbus which allowed the Service X1 bus service to run through to Stafford Station.”
