“So why are you taking a photo of a bus” asked the women at Hamblin Road.
‘BECAUSE IT’S A BANK HOLIDAY AND LOOK, THERE’S A BUS RUNNING!’ I screamed excitedly. Yes – we were looking at the first Good Friday Service in FOUR years – and a lot of people wanting to use it too!
A Sunday and Bank Holiday Bus Service is an invaluable thing! It took a lot of lobbying folks – but it’s going strong. Remember, use it, and you’ll not lose it!
Two other pieces of good news for Woodbridge bus users:
I’ve talked to Suffolk Onboard and they have now agreed to replace those balancing poles at the Hamblin Road bus shelters with proper seating so that people will be able to sit and wait for their buses at long last.
And after I took them to look at the site, they have also approved two new bus stops on the Ipswich Road – above the Notcutts roundabout -so that people wanting to get to Framfield surgery and Clarkson Court can find it easier to use the bus services. The bus companies have also agreed them, so they will go ahead.
