Stop the cuts to 42 and 42A bus service Minster, Cliffsend

Kent County Council, please reconsider the scheme to reduce the subsidies given to this vital bus service! This service is needed.

Why is this important?

The 42 and 42a bus is an important link for residents in Minster and Cliffsend. It links communities where some don't have access to private transport and connects to local schools, doctors' surgeries, shopping areas and village communities. It reduces car use, reduces airborne pollution, saves on parking charges and keeps communities together.

Reasons for signing

  • This is a very important bus link for residents of Cliffsend. It is ridiculous that so many bus services are being hit so hard in this country when we are also being told to use more public transport. This bus route, however, is not just a luxury for some. It is a necessity and a part of life. Without it, two villages within walking distance but not easily walked, will be effectively cut off from each other for some of the residents.
  • It is an important link between the villages and towns
  • There are people in this village who rely on this bus service to stay in contact with their friends and relatives. It is also the only they can get to local shops, dentists and doctors surgeries. We should be extending public services rather than reducing them. It is more environmentally friendly to have regular bus services than lots of short trips in cars, and I believe that the local council should be supporting this service.
