No 54 Bus

The Facebook page received this posting on Mon 9th Sep.......

Hello, I am a resident of curry Rivel and I would like to make you aware of a problem this morning with the No 54 bus.

Please can you post something on the website and raise an issue with the Bus service providers:

The local bus service is so appalling that today ( Monday morning) the No 54 (at 7.37am) did not even stop in the village to pick up the people waiting at the bus stop.
It is the only bus that goes from Curry Rivel into Taunton before 9am, the next bus from Curry Rivel is at 9.30am. The bus was obviously full and therefore did not stop, is this going to be a regular thing on a Monday morning with all the children needing to get into Taunton for collage? The service has been reduced over the years and is no longer fit for purpose, it does not support sustainable transport if it is not a reliable and regular service.

I look forward to your reply.

Firstly the website is not in a position to report such problems, especially since 'we' didn't see the 'incident'.
Try complaining to Problems with public transport at Somerset council ... https://www.somerset.gov.uk/advisor-services/problems-with-public-transport/
Also ask the Parish Council Chair for an opinion... chair@curryrivel.org.uk
Contact the First Bus group and tell them.... https://www.firstbusfeedback.com/s3
