Please do not cut the 96 bus services, it is the only way I can get to the shops, bank, doctors’ surgery, dentist, eye department etc, and the same applies to many of us. I have to be able to do my shopping etc and be back home within the hour, and be able to rely on a good service to get to the vet too. We used to be able to get a bus every ten minutes - why has the bus service deteriorated so much? We are able to manage with an hourly service especially the 9.30am and 10.30am services. We have had to put up with a lot during our lives and would appreciate a little consideration now. We are grateful for the service we now receive and find the drivers helpful and charming.
