Kidsgrove residents living in Mow Cop, Harriseahead and Newchapel have the chance to take part in a consultation by First Bus regarding proposed changes to bus services in the local area.
The 99A route which currently serves the areas of Mow Cop, Harriseahead and Newchapel is one of the routes that is currently being consulted on. First Bus are proposing to adjust this route so that it will run to Hanley, rather than Newcastle. This is based on the claim that usage numbers are low on the route and more people will benefit from having a bus that accesses Hanley, rather than Newcastle.
There will also be changes to other bus routes in Kidsgrove, with some services running to access North Staffs Hospital directly. This would appear to be a welcome change that many appear to support.
Any changes could happen as soon as June, so Kidsgrove residents are advised to have their say on these proposals via the survey on the First Bus website.
