Thanks to Jonathan Young for this latest news. Ed
The Sunday bus was reinstated last weekend (13/12) after Chale, plus Chillerton and Gatcombe, parish councils agreed a deal with Southern Vectis to run three return trips. The arrangement, which includes Bank Holidays except Christmas Day, will continue until the end of Southern Vectis’ winter timetable in March.
Glad to to make a contribution
Niton and Whitwell parish councillor Jonathan Young said:
“We’re glad to be able to make a contribution to this initiative, and recognise that Sundays without a bus service can isolate rural communities.
“Our own NitWhit bus, operated by Minibus Plus, will continue to run on Monday, Thursday and Saturday mornings to Ventnor – including on Christmas Eve. I’m pleased to say that it’s becoming increasingly popular.”
