Bus cuts to the Citi 2 and 9/X9 through Milton from 17th April

by Hazel Smith on 6 March, 2011

Stagecoach announced last week that they are cutting COMPLETELY the Citi 2 service through Milton. It will turn round at the Science Park.

We will just get the 9 bus every half hour through the day. It used to run until 18:40, then 20:15 and 23:15 in the evening to get people home.

But the County Council are cutting their subsidy to the 9 bus in the evening. This leaves Milton residents unable to get home from Cambridge in the evening by bus. The Park and Ride stops at 20:40 – if you can walk that far.

Please sign my petition to the County Council to keep the evening service. Other villages are losing much more. Some will lose their only bus.

You can protest online to the County Council at http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/transport/around/buses/Proposed+changes+for+April+2011.htm. The consultation closes on Friday 11th March.

Also email Stagecoach about the Citi 2 and about whether the 9 might be run at a profit in the evening if there’s no Citi 2 to Milton at cambridge.enquiries@stagecoachbus.com
