Letter: Transport link is a lifeline

Bus service is a lifeline, not an indulgence.
Bus service is a lifeline, not an indulgence.

With much debate at present about discrimination, how about the discrimination shown by the withdrawal of the number 15 route?

This will deprive those who have reached bus pass age and especially those who, through failing sight or mobility, need the bus as a lifeline, not an indulgence. This applies to a large proportion of the population along the route and surely a compromise can be found: an hourly run to alternate with the X93, or a small charge for each journey.

The generation that use this bus route have worked hard and paid their taxes and deserve consideration, not discrimination.
