Save the Diamond 25 Bus Route (Kidderminster - Stourbridge)

This petition is to emphasise the concern over Diamond Bus’s decision to discontinue the 25 Bus service.

Firstly, the usual bus driver, Ollie, is not only a good driver but a warm and welcoming image for the company, and many people enjoy the bus journey purely because he is running it.

Many passengers rely heavily on on-time busses and a reliable service to make it work/college on time . The 125 Service (which will be the only means of getting into Stourbridge from Kidderminster) gets into Stourbridge 10+ minutes after that, meaning  many passengers would be late to work/college etc everyday, which is unacceptable, and that’s if the 125 Bus is on time.

Furthermore for passengers with connecting bus journeys, some who finish work at 5pm, getting the 125 back to Kidderminster could leave them stranded as it gets into the station later than the 25 does due to the timetable, meaning there is a very small time slot to get their second bus, and at this time of day, the buses they would need to catch are the last ones of the day, again if the Bus was marginally late, Many would be stranded in Kidderminster. 

There are no problems getting the 25 Bus as it is always on time and offers a 100% reliable service, which Ollie gives. Many have been known to commend him to Diamond for his service. He knows the route well and gets on well with every passenger who gets on his bus .

To summarise, scrapping the 25 Service for numerous passengers is unacceptable and simply wont work, this decision was poorly chosen and regular passengers of the service weren’t consulted.

I would like to see the 25 Service remain for these reasons.
