Stop First Bus from carrying out devastating cuts to timetables in South Worcestershire

Stop First Bus from carrying out devastating cuts to timetables in South Worcestershire

I am calling on First Bus to reverse their decision to introduce devastating cuts to their timetables in South Worcestershire from September 2018.

Why is this important?

Many people rely on these services to enable them to carry out every day tasks such as going to work, doing the shopping, attending medical appointments and meeting with friends & family.
South Worcestershire is a largely rural area where public transport is limited and isolation a real risk.
In addition to this an over reliance on car use is having a detrimental impact on air quality and health and well-being.
These drastic cuts would be devastating.

I am blown away by your support. We only need 4 signatures to make it to 500.
I addition to this I will be in Malvern Town Centre with my clipboard tomorrow collecting signatures before presenting the petition on Monday.
Even if you have already signed, come and have a chat with me.
All good wishes

Thank you to all of you for signing this petition.
Please keep sharing and raising awareness about the impact that these proposed cuts will have on you, your friends and family.
I intend to present the petition to First next week. It would be fabulous if we could get 1000 signatures.
Thanks so much for your support. By working together we can be a strong voice against these cuts.
All good wishes
