Meg opposes proposed changes to 20A bus route

Friday, August 16, 2013

The South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive has recently announced proposals to alter the route of the 20A bus. If implemented, the service will no longer run via Scarsdale Road, instead operating along Derbyshire Lane and Norton Lees Road.

Sheffield Heeley MP, Meg Munn has added her voice to the consultation by writing to the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive to express her concerns about the proposals. Meg is worried that the suggested alterations will cut many of the elderly community off from Woodseats.

South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive claim that the plans are partly due to low passenger numbers on some routes. However, according to David Young, SYPTE interim deputy director general, there is currently 5.8% more adult fare paying passengers when compared with last year.

Meg Munn, MP said:

“I strongly oppose the proposed change to the 20A bus route. This is an essential service due to the terrain of the area and the number of elderly residents living around Derbyshire Lane. The community has lost its Post Office and the nearest one is located in the Woodseats shopping area.

The 20A is a vital service to the local community and especially the elderly, many of whom have no alternative means of transport. These changes would mean that residents are cut off from Woodseats which is important for access to crucial services such as the doctors and dentists.”

The proposed changes are due to be implemented in October 2013. Meg urges those likely to be affected to raise their opposition to the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive proposals.
