Guided bus will leave Hunts villages with little public transport

I ATTENDED the bus surgery in Market Square, St Ives, and all my worst fears were confirmed.

When the guided bus starts, anybody living south of St Ives bridge, including Fenstanton, will have an inferior bus service. The 45, which picks up from the motel and serves the 300 houses south of the town and Fenstanton will have finished, the 55 will become the guided bus, which leaves either the hourly service, the 15, or the 1A.

However, the 1A runs infrequently at night, so anybody wishing to visit Cambridge will have to walk into town to pick up the guided bus. This imposes a real hardship to the older or venerable who wish to use the bus after 6pm.

The only hope is that Whippet improves its service or that some other provider will run a short service covering Fenstanton and south St. Ives.
