Reinstate the number 68 Bus route between Bolton and the Farnworth

This petition had 126 supporters

We strongly request that First Bus reconsider the changes to the number 68 bus route from Bolton -Trafford Centre that commenced from 19th July 2015 .

These changes have a detrimental effect on service users between Bolton and Farnworth, particularly the elderly.disabled and frequent users. These changes will result in:

  • No public transport access to residents living at top of Bradford Road / Plodder Lane / Glynne Street.
  • Prolonged journey times of up to an hour a day for people living in the area between Bolton and Farnworth who would normally travel on the number 68 bus to work, school or college.
  • Overcrowding on other services during peak times.
  • The recent decision to grant Salford Royal 'Super-Hospital' status will see more and more people requiring transport from Bolton to the Hospital - situated on the 68 bus route.
