Opposing Cuts to Services Operated by Glasgow Citybus

  • Submitted by: Ross Greer, West Scotland, Scottish Green Party.
  • Date lodged: Monday, 08 April 2019
  • Motion reference: S5M-16830

That the Parliament is concerned by cuts to bus services operated by Glasgow Citybus, namely the proposed end of the 142 circular in Bishopbriggs and the recently implemented reduction of services on the 15 route from Milngavie to Glasgow city centre; believes that reductions in these services will have a huge detrimental impact on the communities of Bishopbriggs, Milngavie and Bearsden; further believes that the impact of such cuts will be felt most acutely by older people, young people travelling to college and university, those on the lowest incomes, and people in Bishopbriggs who require access to the GP surgery in Auchinairn, and strongly urges Glasgow Citybus to reverse and reconsider these cuts and consult with the community.
