The Go Sutton bus trial is attracting a lot of attention. Information is at www.gosutton.co.uk.
The year-long trial for this on-demand bus service has had positive feedback and is being extended to cover the area shown on the map. Register online and phone when you want to use the bus. It is £3.50 (plus additional passengers at £2) but free if you have a Freedom Pass, like Richard.
|The bus service an innovative, on-demand scheme which picks up |
residents close to where they live and takes them to any destination
across most parts of the borough. The scheme started earlier this year
and is due to end in May 2020 but Liberal Democrats in Sutton are keen for the service to become permanent.
Residents have told us, especially elderly people or those with learning difficulties, that the bus scheme has proved to be a lifeline for them.
That’s why Liberal Democrat councillors have set up a petition calling
on the Mayor of London and Transport for London to make the
scheme permanent.You can sign the petition by clicking here – please
do pass it on to your neighbours, family and friends in Sutton. Apart
from helping people to get around the borough, the scheme is helping us to improve air quality, reduce congestion and cut down on the
number of individual car journeys.Please sign the petition and help us
to keep making Sutton a great to place live.
