Opposition to the withdrawal of the S4 bus from Middle Barton

The contract for the S4 bus service is due to expire on 30th May 2015. As a consequence of this Oxfordshire County Council (OCC) have been advised by Stagecoach that they intend to withdraw service S4 from Duns Tew and Middle Barton. OCC have therefore invited bids for a shuttle bus service between these villages and Deddington where connections can be made with journeys to and from both Banbury and Oxford. The undersigned express their dismay at Stagecoach's decision, which removes a vital lifeline to this village, and for which the shuttle bus is not an adequate replacement. The S4 service is used for transporting people: to and from work in Oxford and Banbury;to Horton Hospital for visiting and appointments;to Deddington Health Centre;to Water Eaton Park & Ride Route, and then to connect with Route 700 buses to all Oxford Hospitals;pupils to schools in North Oxford/Summertown;pupils to college in Banbury and Oxford;who have had to relinquish their driving license through age or infirmity. The undersigned ask Stagecoach to:a) reconsider this decision;b) enter into a consultation with local residents to ensure a way forward
