If it is a good Carrier if would not be on tender with a small bus. And it would be run commercially.

They would have done their maths and worked out what the cost per use is. this is what happens when your giving free travel away to 16-19 and train travel for £10 for OAPs others lose their buses but of course it looks better given free travel over running buses and people are used to having.

It’s a service that carries mainly oaps with pssses hence why it’s tendered. And they don’t ‘just do their maths’! They cut tendered services without any thought for the passengers and how they might be unconvinced hence why this Failsworth MP has got involved with the 396.
