SAVE THE V BUS

Following a successful campaign led by the then MP Martin Horwood, the V bus service in Cheltenham was launched in March 2010 with stops in Welland Lodge Road, Cleevemount Close and outside Robert Harvey House in Winchcombe Street.

It has seen passenger figures rise dramatically.  Currently more than 1,000 people use the bus to get to Cheltenham General Hospital, Sainsbury’s supermarket on Hales Road and into the town centre.

 Yet it is under threat

The V service is subsidised by Gloucestershire County Council.  The Council has launched a public consultation that threatens to reduce or eliminate this route.

You can help save the V route in two ways:

1.    Complete a questionnaire.  This is available online Here

2.    Attend a consultation session on funded public transport in Cheltenham at Oakley Resource Centre, 113a, Clyde Crescent, GL52 5QJ on Wednesday 25 November, 18.30 – 20.30.


If you need a lift to the meeting, or if you can offer a lift to others, please email Dennis Parsons at dennisp99@hotmail.com and we will try to arrange something.
