In my opinion any changes will disrupt and annoy customers. Reading Buses should be clearer in which services are actually being cut, most bus users wont have seen their consultation before they find the service has changed. I expect many annoyed commuters will be very unhappy with this.
Also it was announced on the 22nd October, with a finish date on 4 November! With a postal strike on some people wont get their comments in on time. I cant see any mention of it on the www.reading.gov.uk website. They changes the service only a few months ago in August
A couple of weeks ago the council finally noticed that the bio ethanol buses were not as green as they had been saying, and with the cost going up have abandoned them, at great cost to us.
