First PMT cuts bus services

You may have heard that First Potteries Ltd (PMT) are cutting all evening and Sunday bus services along London Road.  This will come into affect Church_street_resurfacing_02.jpgfrom 25th November 2017.  This is despite the First Group having an operating profit of £339m according to their Annual Report.  I believe this to be callous, leaving the elderly and vulnerable stuck in their homes and many workers unable to get to work.

I have been in discussions with the City Council about this situation and am pleased to announce that these services are not uneconomic as First Potteries Ltd have said.

Although we haven't yet been able to secure an operator for the evening services D&G Coach & Bus Ltd will be running Sunday and Bank Holiday services along London Road.  These will run hourly from about 9am until 6pm.  The full timetable will be published shortly.

Thanks to D&G - no thanks to First Potteries.
