Keep the 106 penrith/Kendal bus service!

This petition had 653 supporters


I've started this petition due to "council cuts" they have stopped a major bus service routing between penrith and Kendal bi passing other villages to save funds. Cutting people off who rely on the service for work/ education forcing people to give up work or making it impossible for unemployed to start work, forcing people onto benefits. It also effects elderly who rely on the service for shopping and honouring hospital and doctors appointments ect and it's there only means of getting out and maintaining there own independence . I myself am I mother of two currently on maternity leave and I'm looking to return to work soon and finish my studies but it's looking impossible at the moment. For us who cannot drive can't even look into the costs of learning as we don't have transport to get us to jobs to earn the money to cover learning expenses,it's a viscous circle. The government has always encouraged people to use public transport to save on carbon emissions yet they leave us no option. Please support this petition as it has effected so many peoples life's and making us prisoners in our own homes.
