Wisbech Tesco Bus: Service 68

Wisbech Tesco Bus: Service 68

Wisbech Tesco Bus

This  bus service was designed as a result of the Wisbech Bus Service Project  and commenced on Monday 3rd July 2017 as a 12 month pilot service.

The service is currently supported by Section 106 Developer Funding from Tesco  and aims to become a permanent local bus service.

 REVIEW OF ROUTE AND TIMETABLE


Throughout the bus service trial passenger numbers and feedback have been monitored.

At the 9 month review of the service passenger numbers had shown little additional growth. This suggests the service as it is now will not be able to support itself and therefore be withdrawn when the support funding ceases.

Feedback from customers has suggested that changes to the route and timetable would make the service more appealing to more people and improve the chances of the service becoming viable.

We have therefore reviewed the service and are proposing to remove portions of the route with the lowest usage in order to focus on the portions with higher usage which have more chance of success. The portions identified for removal are North Cambs Hospital and the Harecroft Road/North Brink section.

This consultation is now closed.
