News has come today that Arriva plan to withdraw the 130 bus from service from 26th January. Clearly that would be a major loss to this area.
However, a spokesperson for Transport Service Solutions has told us that discussions are taking place with other commercial operators to see if an alternative can be found. We understand there may be more news on this next week.
