Bring Our Bus Stops Back Into Use in Northfield!
This petition had 423 supporters
Northfield Business Improvement District (BID) in conjunction with Northfield Shopping Centre (Northfield, Birmingham, West Midlands) would like Transport for West Midlands and their bus operators to bring back into use the suspended bus stops that were decommissioned on 1st October 2017, without any meaningful and accessible consultation with those that use public transport in and around the Northfield Town Centre.
For example, the decommisioned bus stops, outside of the Northfield Shopping Centre (Bristol Road South entrance) were well used by bus passengers 29, 39, 39a and X61. The lack of accessible consultation has already caused a nuisance for customers leaving the Shopping Centre, in particular those with differing needs and abilities, queueing up to take the bus, only to find out that the bus stop is no longer in use, and told to go to an alternative bus stop, even if it's only 2-4 minutes away.
The BID asks that Transport for West Midlands suspends its pilot and instantly "bring back into use" the suspended bus stops, decommisioned on 1st October for the health and well-being of Northfield Town Centre (and the wider area) and for the businesses, in particular the independents that have been affected by the closure of the bus stops.
