MP meets with First Bus over route cuts

Have your say

MP for Portsmouth South, Stephen Morgan, has called for city council chiefs to step up and work with First Bus to replace bus services lost in the latest round of cuts.

Mr Morgan met again with Marc Reddy, managing director of the bus company, to raise concerns and find solutions to recent lost services. 

First Bus first notified the city council of planned changes affecting Old Portsmouth, Southsea and Tipner in June, but they have yet to announce any formal plans for mitigation.

Stephen Morgan MP, said: ’I’m very concerned that services are falling by the wayside as fares increase. This is no way to build the transport network our city needs.’
