Stagecoach have announced improved accessibility to the route 10 bus stop on Horspath Road following discussions with the county council and local residents’ committee.
The bus company have been in discussions with Horspath Area Residents and Tenants association (H.A.R.T) who were concerned about bus stop accessibility for residents at Shotover View, who currently have to cross the road to get on the bus.
Stagecoach have now agreed with the county council that the stop at Horspath Road Turning Circle will be pick up as well as drop off, enabling residents of Shotover View to have easy access to their local bus service.
Karen Coventry, Business Development Manager for Stagecoach commented, “We recognise the frustration of residents at Shotover View with the distance to the next bus stop so we are pleased that buses will be able to pick up residents from their nearest stop, which is currently drop off only.”
Gus Bianchini, spokesperson for H.A.R.T said, “This is great news for the residents at Shotover View and we are delighted that Stagecoach were able to implement these positive changes.”
These changes will come into effect in the week commencing 1st December 2014.
