Katie Lyle started this petition to devon county council and

This is a petition to prevent the axe or even a reduction in services of a already limited very vital bus service and lifeline to many people. The 6/6a connects the towns of Bude, Holsworthy, Halwill and the villages in between to Okehampton and Exeter. Stagecoach currently propose to curtail the current services at Okehampton. We do not yet know if it's all or some. There is also no guarantee of any connection at Okehampton for onward travel to Exeter. If there is another connection will it be another provider meaning another ticket at additional cost to use. With many household budgets already stretched finding the extra money for the possible extra fare will be hard. Many may be put off by this and therefore potential for a sharp decline of passengers. 

This is a very vital service as it gives us a connection to a major city, national express connections, train stations and also a hospital. We are a very rural community with very few bus services as it is axing this would force many to use cars which as we all know is bad for the environment. It would also add to congestion to an already busy city. Many who use the service cannot afford to drive or are elderly. It is also well used in summer months to bring tourists to Bude so taking this away would have a drop in potential visitors to the area.

I, myself am a regular user and every time I have used this service personally to connect with the train station I have seen the bus full to capacity. You cannot blame a lack in numbers for the proposal.
