In light of the cuts to the evening service on the X31, which goes between Bridport and Dorchester, we have decided to create a group dedicated to protecting our local bus services: Bus Action Group.
I want to thank everyone who has already signed our petition – it’s encouraging to know we are getting so much support! The responses have highlighted so many concerns around cutting the X31: from access to the hospital to social isolation.
Our first mission will be to reinstate the evening service on the X31. We are talking to other companies who may be able to replace First, take on the contract and give us the service we’re entitled to. We want to take this to Dorset County Council to ensure they make First fulfil their obligations and give us a proper service! We would also like Martinstown to have its full daytime service restored.
Please sign the petition below so we can take the matter up with the Council:
Let’s hope that after the success of the campaign to save the 47, we will be able to save the X31 too!
