I am delighted to pass on more excellent news about the restored Woodbridge to Ipswich 65b Sunday bus – a service which which we managed to get back a few months ago after much lobbying.
You may remember that Woodbridge residents were cut off for some years from any Sunday or holiday bus transport whatsoever (including to Ipswich hospital for visiting, A&E and and minor injuries), but that, after much lobbying, this was restored in July (see details here). We were told at the time – quite fairly in my opinion – it was a case of ‘use it, or lose it.’
Today I have heard that due to the level of patronage, the 65b service will continue at least until March, and with an enhanced service! The 65b will now run 5 times a day in each direction, and from Ipswich to Melton! The revised timetable with operate from Sunday 11th January 2015.
This is power and the point of local politics. Lobbying and local activism really can work on occasion.
It can also reverse some terrible decisions!
PS. On a smaller scale – if you are a smaller person you may notice that you can now read the timetables at the Turban Centre. I asked for them to be lowered and they have done so!
