STOP BUS CUTS IN DEVON PETITION

Exeter Green Party started this petition to devon county council

We believe £1.7 million cut to bus services proposed by Devon County Council will have a devastating effect on communities and individuals especially women, the elderly and young people.

We the undersigned call on Devon County Council to:

  • Withdraw proposals which affect travel to and from education and work and reconsider those which affect a high number of passengers and services.
  • Talk to bus operators about the viability of their whole business as a result of the proposed cuts and work with bus operators to plan cost effective changes - increase passenger numbers or plan alternative routes and timetables in consultation with communities.
  • Invest in priority measures which make the bus a more attractive and faster option for travellers. This can include more bus lanes, which operate for longer, and priority signalling. Such measures make services more commercially viable.
  • Invest in more community run bus services, such as Bob the Bus in Totnes. These services can be more flexible and feed into the main bus network.
