Taxibus Services (Plymouth)

Volume 514: debated on Monday 26 July 2010

The petition is against the withdrawal of the taxibus services in Plymouth from Glenholt down through to the city.

The petition states:

The Petition of residents of the Plymouth, Moor View constituency and others,

Declares that the petitioners are unhappy with the decision to withdraw the taxibus service that serves the residents in the north of Plymouth; notes that residents in St Budeaux and Weston Mill use this bus to access their GP surgery, dentist, shops and other community facilities; and further declares that the withdrawal of this service will cause major inconvenience to residents.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to encourage local authorities to support local taxibus services to avoid these vital public transport services being removed.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
