LETTER: Totally reliant on services

Your letters

I wish to draw your attention to the proposed changes to route 74 from Storrington to Horsham via Brooks Green currently operated by Compass Buses.

Initially the bus service was hourly which was fine.

It was then cut to two hourly which necessitates a lot of planning when organising appointments at the doctors, dentists etc.

It is now proposed it is to be cut altogether or at best incorporated into another route via Barns Green omitting Brooks Green.

I am totally relint on this bus for shopping, doctors, dentists, opticians, hospital etc, as I am 77 years old, have limited mobility, do not drive and on pension credit (so taxi fares are out of the question), do not have a computer or mobile phone.

How am I supposed to go about ordinary daily life?

These proposed changes will make me housebound.

What has happened to CARE IN THE COMMUNITY!
