A bus route in a rural area is a lifeline, nota luxury.

It's the only public transport to serve many small villages. It will isolate many people and it means the loss of transport for school children and the only means of travelling to and from work!

Growing up in Tugby, I relied on this bus service to get to and from school in Leicester as well as to see friends at the weekends. If the bus service is removed, it will not only isolate young and elderly alike, it will significantly add to congestion and pollution as more are forced to drive into Leicester instead of taking public transport.

Given that LCC are set to invest £100m to get drivers of our roads, I can't see how getting rid of this service fits with that! The council have an obligation to provide this type of service for rural communities.

The service it vital for all ages in society. Our young adults still need to travel out of county to attend colleges and 6th forms unless they are academic enough and choose Harrington - we are poorly served in Rutland post 16 

This service is vital for many people of all ages. People use it to access healthcare in Billesdon snd Bushby and to travel to and from the city and other towns such as Uppingham for work, education and many other reasons. Houghton is being forced to expand to provide more housing and so there will be an even greater need for this vital service. The housing projects boasted that good public transport links made this area an ideal area for building more houses...how dare they now try to remove this service now that building is well underway. Do good public transport now suddenly no longer matter?
