Bus cutbacks in the Burnham-On-Sea area to be debated by council

Bus users in the Burnham-On-Sea area who are unhappy at cutbacks in local bus services will be able to attend a public meeting on Monday (September 2nd).

Bus operator First recently axed evening journeys on its 21 service serving Burnham, Bridgwater and Taunton in a bid to reduce costs.

Sedgemoor District Council's Community Security Committee will be hearing the views of people affected by the changes.

A spokesman said: "Public transport is a vital service for a rural area such as Sedgemoor. With this in mind, the council's Community Scrutiny Committee will be focussing on the issue of bus services in the district."

"Although Sedgemoor is not responsible for public transport, many residents contacted Sedgemoor following the cancellation of certain bus routes. The purpose of the meeting is to clarify the changes to bus routes, to allow members of the community to voice concerns and to facilitate potential solutions."

"It is also hoped that the meeting can promote better integration between types of public transport – buses and trains in particular."

The Community Security Committee meeting will begin at 2.30pm and will be held at Bridgwater Rugby Club.
