Should there be a community transport scheme for the villages?
Pitstone Parish Council, Buckinghamshire County Council and Community Impact Bucks, are currently exploring the possibility of establishing a Community Transport Scheme (eg mini bus) to serve Pitstone and the surrounding villages.
Pitstone currently has a voluntary car scheme, but this provides a service for medical appointments only whereas an enhanced Community Transport scheme could provide a wider range of uses eg used by the schools and local groups, offering new/extended services like dial-a-ride, possibly regular routes.
As this will be a community-led venture, it is essential that we get as much input as possible from the wider community in regards to the viability of establishing this scheme and the priorities in terms of need from the potential service users.
To this end we are arranging a stakeholders meeting to discuss the idea in more detail. The meeting will take place on Thursday 10 May 2018 at 7.30pm and will be held at the Millennium Room at the Memorial Hall in Pitstone.
We encourage you to come along and take the opportunity to give us your views and ideas. If you’d like to offer your voluntary services to help set up, maintain or drive for any such scheme, please also come along and chat to us. Please RSVP by Monday 30 April 2018.
If you have any questions about this then please contact Mrs Laurie Eagling, Clerk to Pitstone Parish Council, on 01296 767261 or firstname.lastname@example.org
