First UK Bus will be consulting with Saddleworth bus users, during November, about the quality and value of bus routes and services serving Saddleworth. They are giving people living and working in the Saddleworth and Lees areas the opportunity to shape their future bus services as part of a wide ranging consultation exercise.
Three drop in sessions will take place on Saturday 2nd November:
Greenfield near Tesco from 1000 until 1200 on Saturday
Diggle at the Hanging Gate from 1300 to 1430
Scouthead from 1530 to 1700.
Passengers who cannot attend a meeting can fill in an on line service form on www.firstgroup.com/manchester or can pick up questionnaires from local post offices and libraries.
Mr. McGraw said, “We are determined to grow the number of people using buses in the area and will consider what network changes can be introduced following the consultation meetings. We have come up with a number of ways for the local community to get their views across to us, either face to face, online or in writing. We now need local people to take a small amount of time out of their daily routine to respond to us.
Full details of locations will be on the First UK Bus website: http://www.firstgroup.com/
