Use it or lose it! S20 school bus service under threat
The current school bus service provided for primary school children attending Lady Elizabeth Hastings school in Ledston is under threat of closure due to the low numbers of children using it and the high cost to the bus company of providing it. Closure of this service could potentially add up to 48 additional daily car journeys to Ledston, impacting on the village and private businesses.
The parish council will write to Ward Councillors to stress the importance of the continuation of the bus service, not only for the parents and children who currently use the bus, but also to prevent Ledston village being overwhelmed by car traffic. More »
The Mayor of West Yorkshire, Tracy Brabin was elected under the banner of her 'better buses' proposal and ward councillors are themselves taking up the challenge.
The provision of a safe, reasonably priced and 'green' bus service for parents of children attending a rural village school is vital and should be subsidised to enable it to continue.
However, it is also important that parents of children attending the school use the existing school bus service where they can in preference to using their cars. Everyone should play their part and if more children used the bus service this would surely safeguard its future.
A consultation exercise is currently underway - you should submit your thoughts on the potential axing of this service by completing a short survey on the schools' section of the Metro website at www.wymetro.com/schools/changes-to-school-services/ » Less
