As a result of the campaigning and feedback from residents we were pleased to recieve this following e-mail this morning. Thank-you to everyone who helped achieve this success by signing petitions and providing feedback….
Thank you for providing us with feedback for service 770 & X99 in the Leeds Bus Services Review.
During the consultation process, we received many comments about the provision of Sunday evening services between Wetherby and Leeds. It became very clear that despite the fact that the services were not well used, many people wanted the present services to continue. It was decided to try and maintain the service if it could be done within the overall budget for the Leeds area. Bus companies were asked to quote prices for the provision of a two hourly service on both X99 and 770 and for the present hourly service on both routes. When the tenders came back in, it was clear that it would be possible to maintain the service in its current form for the next three years within the budget available. There will now be no change to the Sunday evening services between Wetherby and Leeds.
