I KNOW that letters have been written about the Free Town Bus before, but I wonder if the local authority and the management of K Line buses and their drivers realise just how much the bus has changed people’s lives.
It is far more than just a welcome lift from A to B, B to C and so on. To those people who have difficulty walking and carrying heavy bags it has really become a lifeline.
Talking with people myself and overhearing conversations, I know there are a lot of people who are visiting town now who had not been there for months, or in some cases years. Some people have visited the Kingsgate shopping centre for the first time.
I have heard people say many times what a difference it has made to their lives. The drivers of the buses are always pleasant and helpful and the whole scheme is such a wonderful idea.
So congratulations and thank you to those who made it possible and long may it continue.
