Railbus - use it or lose it!

Oxfordshire County Council has formally responded to the petition organised through the Charlbury Website to keep the taxibus to Charlbury railway station.

"I am writing to officially acknowledge the petition handed in at the Cabinet Member Decisions (Transport) meeting on 2 October.

"You will be pleased to know that a new four year contract has been awarded to ensure that service C1 continues in operation. I regret that only the four morning peak and four evening peak journeys will continue as the off-peak patronage was so low. However a new demand responsive service will be introduced between 1000 and 1300 from Leafield to Charlbury.

"In addition, a survey of patronage will be undertaken in 2010 to establish if the revised service is being well used and it is possible that further changes may have to be made if there are insufficient passengers using the Railbus. I would therefore be grateful for any assistance you can give to publicise this service so that its future can be guaranteed.

"Yours sincerely
Steve Howell
Head of Transport"
