Great Houghton bus services update

I met with Stagecoach Yorkshire to outline my disappointment at their decision to proceed with changes to the 219/219a bus service in Great Houghton despite widespread opposition from residents.

These changes have left many residents with no direct bus link to Doncaster. This is completely unacceptable, and I made that clear to Stagecoach in our meeting.

I remain concerned at the lack of transparency in the Stagecoach consultation on these changes, and have asked them yet again to publish the full consultation responses as soon as possible.

Bus services are so important to so many people in our communities. They provide a crucial outlet for people to get to appointments, to see friends and family, or to get to the shops. I remain incredibly disappointed that these changes have been made, but I will continue to push for improvements so that my constituents have access to the best possible bus services here in Barnsley.
