    How about restoring some of the routes . A friend of mine lives in Ryde (not outer Mongolia), and told me there is no bus where she lives after 6pm on a Saturday! If you want to visit anyone in Newchurch there are two buses in the morning and two at night (well there was last time I looked). Perhaps a few smaller buses would be cheaper to run and we could provide people with a service.
