Dozens Drop-In for Bus Discussion


On Friday 22nd November Rachel, First Bus, Metro and Jamie Hanley, Labour Parliamentary Candidate for Pudsey, joined together to host a drop-in surgery at Cafe Fraiche in Rodley.

Many local people came down to share their concerns and suggestions regarding local bus services. First and Metro have taken the feedback given on-board and are looking into ways to implement changes to improve services, particularly the service level of the number 86 in Rodley and the turnaround point of the 49 in Bramley.

Rachel said, “The bus drop-in was a great success and I was delighted with how many people came along to make their views heard. It is important that First and Metro hear feedback from people who use their services and I hope improvements can be made soon. A big thank you to Cafe Fraiche for hosting the event and making us all welcome.”

Colin Booth, area service delivery manager for First commented, "We were delighted to team up with Rachel Reeves and Metro to listen to our customers in the Rodley area. We got some very useful feedback and will now consider the points raised and look to introduce improvements for our customers in the near future."
