Route 129

Statement from the 129 Community Bus Partnership

Following extensive Community involvement in 2014 together with exceptional service from Paul Winson coaches, the 129 Bus service has been saved and a new contract has been awarded to Paul Winson Coaches for an initial 3 year period.

A Community Bus Partnership has been formed and members include Parish Councillors, LCC representatives, the Coach Operator and members of the public. As part of the new contract the partnership aims to assist with increasing passenger numbers to such an extent that in 3 years time the County Council are able to continue with their support for the service. The Partnership wishes to work with key organisations and businesses along the route from Ashby to Loughborough to help publicise their businesses and encourage members of the public to use the bus service to reach those organisations and businesses.

The Partnership wishes to launch our activities at the Belton Parish Annual Meeting on Saturday 16th May 2015 and would welcome involvement from ALL organisations and businesses along the route and any thoughts or comments.
