Small Bus Changes Spark Late, Silly 'Outrage'

As mentioned, stories are pretty thin on Bank Holidays and this Monday has given a prime example. The bus changes happening tomorrow to Thamesdown Transports services have been blown out of context.

The change to the Penhill areas services was highlighted, with Mr and Mrs Howells narked at the cut to the number 10. In the print edition, not shown yet online, the couple state they already walk a "convenient 400 yards" to the bus stop.

Swindon Centric Says ; There are parts of West Swindon, notably Grange Park and Shaw where walking more than double that distance to catch bus services is the norm and has been since the estates were built. The people in those areas aren't screaming and shouting about this, probably because they don't mind walking.
