About Us

We are a small group consisting of a handful of volunteers dedicated to protecting and improving local bus services for our community.

Our campaign started in December 2014 when we learned that we were to lose most of our bus services, including the service to one of our nearest towns in just days, without warning to the public. A petition was launched and rapidly over 2000 people signed it. 

However, we were too late at the time to save the buses. We campaigned hard and that summer, in a packed Harlington centre we learned that we were to get one of our buses back and the only existing bus at that point was to double its frequency. Our campaign had been mostly successful with one exception - we still didn't have a bus to our main hospital despite having a population of around 39,000 people.

Since then we have continued with our campaign to protect local bus services from cuts, undertaken transport survey questionnaires and presented the real stories and views of local bus users at county council meetings.


Our Continued Campaign

Our campaign continues. However, more recently we have come to realise that, despite the efforts given by our volunteers to protest and petition against cuts and reductions in local bus services, year by year these services still continued to erode.

More recently we have adopted a different approach. We have turned protests into Bus Information & Feedback events and turned petitions into My Ideal Bus Journey to help listen to local residents and put their feedback to good use. 

In May 2023 We started to ask local residents ‘If our local commercial bus operator decides not to consider our proposals, would you support a community based alternative - operated by the community for the community?’ -  82% said yes!
