Andrea Campaigns For A Suitable Replacement of the 209 Bus Service

Many residents of Drighlington and Gildersome, the most vulnerable in particular, relied on the Bus 209 Heckmondwike – Leeds passing through their villages, which has now been cancelled.

Whilst I appreciate that according to the service provider, Arriva, this route was not economically viable, it offered a fundamental lifeline to many residents of Drighlington and North of Gildersome.

I welcome the improvements to the 229 Route, with buses every 15 minutes, but I invite residents to join me in asking Arriva to find a suitable alternative for the commuters directly affected by the cancellation of Route 209.

Please put your name to the petition below to help support those relied on the 209 route as a lifeline to ensure access to vital services and shops.
