Since changes introduced on service 80 and 91, we have received a number of comments and feedback from customers in the Holymoorside area. We have also been in contact with Lee Rowley MP, Toby Perkins MP and Councillor Martin Thacker and we understand that there are concerns about the loss of the direct service from Holymoorside through to Chesterfield Royal Hospital and that the new timetable does not cater for children attending Brookfield School.
From 28 January 2018, service 80 (Holymoorside - Chesterfield - Royal Hospital - Brimington) was replaced between Holymoorside and Chesterfield by new service 91.
Unfortunately it is not possible for us to reinstate the service as it was. We will, however consider adjusting some journeys to better suit customers travelling to and from the school and will also explore whether occasional buses can be provided so that customers can stay on the bus to travel through to the Royal Hospital.
We want to make sure that the service works as best it can for local residents and we would like to ask for your comments and feedback on the questionnaire attached to help us assess the needs of our customers.
The reasons for the change to the service are summarised below:
