Yet again this morning I came accross a few more folk who are fed up with the 18.
On of whom just doen’t understand where Lothian Buses gets their figures from, as every Sunday on her way to work, the 18 was full, of others going to work. Her travelling time has trebled now, that she can’t take just noe direct bus.
Yesterday I got on the second last 18, it only goes part route to Clovenstone, so I change at Westside Plaza and take a 3 or 33. Further the was a couple of girls who did not realise that the bus was only going part route. One of whom was going to Oxgangs, the other to Craigour. They ended up having to go via the city centre, which they were not too chuffed about, as they thought it was not sensible to have to go into the city centre just to go back out again. It just shows you that there obviously is some demand for this service.
I now have just over 400 signatures.
The Bakers on Moredun Park Road, the Moredun Co-op/Scotmid, and Safeway have all accepted sheets of the petition so that staff and customers are able to sign it. This is a major help.
Yeserday, I recieved a sheet from a wee boy who got just over a whole sheet of signatures. This is also a great help to the campaign.
I have now colected just over 340 signatures, still a long way to go though.
Just so that you know. The Scotmid in Oxgangs has the petition available for you to sign if you are passing.
I currently have over 270 signatures, in just over a week.
