Give us big­ger buses, less of­ten

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

Are the lit­tle and of­ten buses re­ally nec­es­sary?

To­day I went shop­ping at Tesco in Willes­bor­ough. From my stop at The Windmill pub I passed six buses com­ing out of town as we went in (in 24 min­utes).

It was a dif­fer­ent mat­ter when I wanted to come home. I had to wait 20 min­utes for a bus then THREE came to­gether.

Later on in the day I went into Ash­ford. Again I had to wait a long time for a bus and then this time FIVE came to­gether.

Can any­one tell me why we have to travel in a hot cramped bus when if the buses were spaced out we could travel in com­fort in a larger bus.

If the buses are at 10 minute in­ter­vals we could have a larger bus which means fewer driv­ers and ex­pense for Stage­coach, the bus com­pany.

If a big­ger bus had been on my route to­day I would have only made one jour­ney in­stead of two. Mrs M. Cleaver Rom­ney Road, Willes­bor­ough
