Caroline Flint has welcomed as “a lifeline for Don Valley’s villages” the Labour pledge of new funding of £1.3billion per year to reverse cuts made to 3,000 bus routes by the Tories since 2010 and to fund the expansion of new bus services.

Said Caroline: “For too long, many of our outlying towns and villages get a second class bus service.  Yet buses are essential to get people to work on early shifts and home late at night.

“Doncaster’s towns and village stand to gain from reinstating bus services.  It will also reduce the risk of isolation for many elderly, and vulnerable people living in rural areas who have been totally cut off as a result of their bus services disappearing.”
