Rethink urged on early morning bus cut

September 5, 2011 3:55 PM
A local councillor has written to Centrebus asking them to think again about plans to cut a bus service which covers the Hollycroft and Wykin areas of Hinckley.
Michael Mullaney, Liberal Democrat councillor for Hinckley Trinity that covers the Wykin and part of the Hollycroft estate, wrote to the company after being informed that they had ceased to run a pre 9am bus service.
Michael Mullaney said " The Centrebus number 72 used to run a bus before 9am that took people from Hollycroft and Wykin to the town centre.
"The number 72 service has now been scrapped and merged into a number 75 and 76 services. Neither of these services run buses before 9am.
"I and the other local Councillors Bill, Wright, Cope, Bray, Witherford and Lynch are concerned that people who live on Hollycroft and Wykin and work in Hinckley Town centre will no longer have a pre 9am service to get them to town.
"I've written to the bus company asking them to think again about this decision and would be interested in hearing from anyone who has been affected by the changes to this service. People can contact me at michaeltmullaney@yahoo.co.uk or on 07576 289910. Or you can contact Cllrs David Bill, Stuart Bray, Don Wright, David Cope, Bron Witherford and Keith Lynch who also represent the affected areas."
