Save the No.18 Bus!

Conservative led Council to cut No. 18 bus route Saved!

Update: We presented a petition with 1000 signatures to Poole Council and are pleased to confirm the No.18 Loop through Broadstone is to be retained, albeit at a slightly reduced service. The last two journeys will be cut, otherwise the service remains unchanged. As always, the message is use it or lose it.

Thank you to everyone who signed this petition. This time you have been listened to.

Local campaigner, Vikki Slade and Councillor Mike Brooke have launched a campaign to save the No. 18 bus route from cuts to bus services.

Poole Council are looking to slash another £152,000 from their budget and hope that cutting the Broadstone bus service will save £19,000.

Vikki Slade, who led the campaign to save the No. 32 bus said: “This bus route is used by elderly and vulnerable people who want to live independently. Poole Council can’t continue to target cuts at people who rely on public transport to get about.”

The cuts would mean that the No. 18 would cease to loop round Broadstone before heading back towards Bournemouth.

Please do sign Vikki and Mike's petition today. The Council are running an online consultation until 13th November, visit poole.gov.uk/bussubsidies to have you say.

    It would be a real shame to lose this service since I rely on it to get to Bournemouth without having to change buses at Poole. Without it, it will become a lot harder to meet up with my friends who live in the Bournemouth and Christchurch area.
