Calder ward councillor Janet Battye and Hebden Bridge bus campaigner Mike Smith rode the rural bus routes this morning (Friday) to see any weaknesses or positives in the services for themselves.
Their timetable was service B (Dodnaze) at 8.58am from the railway station, service A (to Old Town) from the railway station at 9.27am, and service E at 10.08am (to Heptonstall and Blackshaw Head). They then got off at New Road (10.46am) and caught the F (Fairfield) at 11.25am.
Mike was distributing leaflets informing passengers of Metro’s proposed bus changes and encouraging them to get involved in the consultation, which runs until September 9.
To find out how Janet and Mike got on, see Thursday’s Hebden Bridge Times.
• The pair are holding a drop-in session at Wadsworth Community Centre, Old Town, on Thursday, September 12, from 3pm to 6pm, All are welcome to call in and talk about local issues, including buses.
