I have today been informed that the 373 bus service is to be withdrawn (Hazel Grove Station to Stepping Hill).

Please see link to timetable: http://www.tfgm.com/route-explorer/Pages/rx/num.html?UserText=373

I would really appreciate your thoughts on this either on here or via email on cllr.oliver.johnstone@stockport.gov.uk.

Not surprising, never seen anybody use it!

(This is the point usually where a load of people who have never used the bus, and have no intention of using it, campaign to save it)

Youre right Jenny you do find that happens often but it is important that we do voice concerns for what is likely a a number of vulnerable people who do rely on the service, especially as it connects the hospital to areas some distance from the 192 route.

Completely understand that cancellation. It has to be viable, and I doubt that route will be.

Not sure how many people will find the need to travel between the hospital and Hazel Grove Station but, once upon a time, there was a proposal to provide SHH with its own station (I think before Woodsmoor was built). I seem to recall that this was scuppered by the hospital itself as they predicted that people from the psychiatric unit might find it too convenient - if you get my drift. Pretty lame excuse if you ask me.
