Anger at bus route changes grows
Over 2,000 bus users have now signed a petition to voice their anger at recent changes to bus routes.
Users are unhappy at a number of changes that were made when Wolverhampton’s new bus station opened on Sunday 24th July and have called on local councillors to help their cause.
The petition which has been backed by local Councillors Steve Evans, Rita Potter, Â Kyle Jackson, Val Evans and Bhupinder Gakhal calls forÂ operator Centro /Network West Midlands to reconsider route changes to the former 525 and 528 services which have now been renumbered as the 25 and 28.
Residents are unhappy that the 25 no longer stops on Primrose Lane, Blackhalve Lane or Longknowle Lane in Fallings Park or on Wednesfield High Street.
Bus users in Ashmore Park are angry that the 28 no longer goes to Bilston and stops in Willenhall.
Centro have said that they will review all of the changes after 3 months, but this is clearly not soon enough for many bus users.
Have you been affected by these route changes?
