Buses ARE in crisis, says stranded deputy

ONE of Guernsey’s most committed bus champions says the service is in crisis after he and five others were left stranded in Torteval.
Deputy John Gollop, a non-driver who uses the buses almost every day, was disappointed standards were slipping under Island Coachway’s successor CT Plus.
Deputy Gollop, pictured, who is also a member of the Bus Users’ Group, spoke out after the 7a failed to turn up for passengers waiting at Torteval Church after a parish event.
‘I know there was a diversion at the time, which was a special factor, but it is another example of where the company doesn’t think,’ he said. ‘There was no notices put up and no information on its website.’
CT Plus said road closures and diversions were a fact of life in Guernsey.
