The 715 bus, operated by Diamond Buses, runs from Bolton to Wigan via Wingates and Aspull and offers a regular and frequent service to my constituents on both weekdays and weekends.
Disappointingly, this bus service is being reduced on weekdays, meaning that the service will terminate in Westhoughton, instead of travelling on to Wingates, Dicconson Lane, Aspull and Wigan
Diamond's proposed alternative, the No7 service, fails to serve Wingates and Dicconson Lane, which will leave many of my constituents unable to get to Wigan without changing bus on their journey.
This is unacceptable, so please, sign my petition below and join my campaign to save the 715 bus!
(A copy of the petition is also available to sign in my constituency office, of 15 Market Street, Westhoughton, BL5 3AH)
