Bus service ‘faces failure’
Tuesday 19th March 2013, 12:00PM GMT.
THE rate of decline in the number of passengers using Guernsey’s bus service has accelerated.
Final figures for 2012 reveal that there was a fall every month compared with 2011.
And the trend has continued this year, with the January figure down by 2,893 to 89,069, a decrease of 3.15% – a considerably larger drop than between 2011 and 2012 when it fell by just 231 journeys or 0.25%.
The number of passengers had not fallen below 90,000 a month in either 2011 or 2012.
Speaking after last night’s public meeting on a new timetable, Environment minister Deputy Roger Domaille, pictured, admitted that the current bus service was failing and it was important to take action now rather than to sit down and let it die.
