Sign the petition to bring back Westbourne’s buses

By 25 June, 2018 No Comments

The Parish Council invites all residents to sign a petition to help bring back Westbourne’s buses which have recently been dramatically reduced.

The number 54 bus to Chichester is running at a reduced timetable and there are now no services to Havant. This has left many in Westbourne feeling isolated and unable to access essential services and facilities.

Cllr Richard Hitchcock, Chairman of the Parish Council, said: “Please sign this petition to make West Sussex County Council aware of our concerns and encourage them to put an improved bus service in place.

“Residents in Westbourne are rightly concerned about the reduction of our buses. They provide a vital service for many younger and older people who do not have access to a car and rely on public transport for work and access to shops or health services. It is essential that Westbourne as a rural community supports its residents with good transport links.”

The petition will be sent to West Sussex County Councillor Viral Parikh.

Thank you for your support.
