Dear Tyne and Wear Passenger Transport Executive,
I am very disappointed with the withdrawal of the number 1 bus service from the Northumbria University site and 4 Lane Ends. My wife and I are 69 years and 68 years respectively, We used to travel on the No. 1 bus up to 4 Lane Ends to catch the Metro into town and do the reverse on our way home. We also used this bus service when returning from the Airport. On Monday 26th June 2017 we returned from a visit to London, caught the Metro to 4 Lane Ends and had to walk home on the Haydon Grange estate. We were not the only pensioners doing this. To see 1/2/3 no. 1 buses stacked behind one another on the University campus is frankly quite ridiculous. I know this is annoying a number of other people - so please reconsider reinstating this service to 4 Lane Ends thus enabling your customers ( Not just pensioners ) to have access to the Metro, Post Office and local shops

Yours faithfully,
Keith A Shelley

Dear Mr Shelley,

I have spoken to my colleagues with Bus Services who have informed me that the decision to curtail the route of service 1 at Coach Lane Campus with effect from 30 April 2017 was made by Stagecoach. We have therefore passed your comments to Stagecoach and ask that they respond to you directly on this matter.

Regards
Michael
