RING AND RIDE PROPOSALS

Caroline Spelman, MP for Meriden, is calling on her constituents, particularly in rural areas, to look carefully at Centro’s proposals to limit the Ring and Ride service - mostly to disabled people and over 85s - and to contribute to Centro’s questionnaire.

She said: “I am concerned about these latest proposals, especially as I have been trying to get bus companies to increase rather than decrease the amount of public transport available for everyone in rural areas. People in the countryside and small villages will be the worst affected if these changes come into force. This is especially bad news for people in Berkswell who lost their bus service a few years ago.

“Please take a look at the proposals on
http://www.centro.org.uk/consultation/RingRideConsultation.aspx.

There is an online questionnaire that must be completed before Friday March 30th. If you want Centro to reconsider their plans, please take the opportunity provided and have your say.”
