Robert Birch started this petition to Staffordshire County Council and Arriva Buses

At the end of June 2019 Arriva buses cut all bus services to a Boney Hay. This has had a significantly detrimental impact on many people living there. Elderly people are isolated, workers now struggle to get to their jobs and children and young adults now have problems getting to school and college.

Imagine you are elderly with just a pension for income, you are now going to struggle to get to doctors or hospital appointments, be isolated from social interactions and find it impossible to visit friends, family or pop to the shops. Young people will have difficulties accessing education facilities if they can’t easily get there, impacting massively on their future prospects.

Arriva Buses and Staffordshire County Council have isolated this community and shown little regard for some of the most vulnerable who need and rely on the bus service in the same way as others need and rely on their cars. Whilst Arriva can claim the route is not profitable, this is a social issue and that is why the route needs to be subsidised by Staffs County Council, who have a duty to serve and protect our community and those most at need within it. Even if you don’t live in the area or use the bus, by showing your support you are working to show that essential services in your own areas won’t be surrendered without a fight

The signatories of this petition require Arriva and Staffordshire County Council to work together to ensure bus services are reinstated in Boney Hay.
