Save the Free Bus!

Dear Members

Please do not abolish the FreeBee free bus link service in Sheffield.

Why is this important?

The service is a lifeline to many ordinary people, particularly those with mobility problems.

Sheffield's FreeBee service is very popular and has been a great link to the new Moor Market. It is described on the Travel South Yorkshire website as “a huge success” and in 2009 after only two years of operating “carried its millionth passenger…, smashing predicted figures and receiving glowing feedback."

We urge you as Councillors who represent people in South Yorkshire not to enforce these savage cuts and other associated 'savings' on the local population and instead look at the long-term value to society and the local economy this service provides.

Thank you for signing this petition.

Unfortunately the Integrated Transport Authority (ITA) decided to proceed with these and other cuts last Thursday. This of course does not mean that we should give up! Expect a campaign soon!

Please email me at matthewreeve@outlook.com if you wish to help.

Thanks again!
