Save and improve the Lincolnshire Norfolk 505 bus route
Protect and improve the 505 bus service from Splading to Kings Lynn
Why is this important?
For the young, those unable to drive and people living in quite isolated areas the 505 bus service has become a vital resource.
Connecting two busy towns and a great number of small villages and hamlets this vital artery of travel is the only way day to day life can continue. Villages like Fleet, like Gedney arnt serviced by shops and pubs. With no adiquate alternative these small towns will continue to be strangled.
Many teenagers in the area at one time used this service for school or for work. This service has become curtailed and trimmed to a level where it is alteady possible for these people to take their first job that would finish at 6pm or later which in turn added pressure on social support services and the wider community.
Yes this route should be continued.
However, as the lifeblood of our local community should it not be extended to allow our children and non driving people access to work in the major towns of the area.
Sign this petition if you feel people have a right to support themselves by working and looking for self improvement opportunities.
Sign this petition if you think that bus routes serve the greater community rather than the dividends of shareholders.
Sign this petition if you’ve ever finished work in the daylight and still not been able to get a bus home.
Actually, I can’t thknk why you wouldn’t sign this petition.
